From Our Editors

Layers upon layers of press clippings — three from the New York Times, others from Ploughshares and Time Out — cling to The Poetry Society of New York, whose diverse projects and events in the named of poetic excellence can't help but attract attention. After all, this is the organization behind the New York City Poetry Festival, whose poets, poetry fans, craft vendors, and food gather annually on Governor's Island to cite verse, hone imaginations, and pole-vault using nothing but giant quill pens.

The Poetry Society of New York also pilots Brothel Books, a small publisher aiming to "[b]ring orange groves to New York City" by printing epic, affecting work. The society's other programs include an ongoing reading series that's hosted poets well-known and obscure since 1978, an immersive theatrical experience called The Poetry Brothel, and a video literary journal. It's all in support of the organization's mission statement, whose three-item list of goals concludes with a simple promise: "to never bore you."
