Poetry is an ancient art that is ever new, which is proved each fall by the Poets Forum-a splendid gathering, a rambunctious and diverse chorus, a forum of spirited solitaries. As John Berryman put it, "We are on each other's hands / who care."

 

- Edward Hirsch

Rita Dove

The Poets Forum is a true assembly of minds, a marketplace of ideas. You'll find no posturing or pronouncements, no peacocks or princesses-just poetry poetry poetry.

All year I look forward to our Harvest gathering, to the ongoing conversation between all the readers and writers who join forces to fill our communal spaces with the laughter and grief and anger and joy of poems.

- Sharon Olds

The Poets Forum has become the poetry event of the fall, as poets (and fans of poetry) of all aesthetics celebrate and learn about what they all have in common: a desire to give life itself a shape through language.

Robert Hass

This gathering of poets from all over the country and from many sets of aesthetics and practices in the fall in Manhattan, when the air was cold and Central Park glistening, felt like something between an updraft and a feast.

We'll be reading, listening, discussing potent poetry topics, and looking for you.
