phati’tude Literary Magazine has launched “Real Poetry, Real Talk,” a hot new reading series to be held at the landmark Bowery Poetry Club in New York City, hosted by Jon Sands, one of the nation’s most celebrated spoken word artists and a renowned slam poet, who recently published his first poetry collection, The New Clean.
“Real Poetry, Real Talk” is a place for performance and learning, where the reading of “real poetry” is followed by “real talk” designed to celebrate the written word. The series will feature a variety of nationally-known and local literary talents who bring high levels of energy, amusement and poignancy to an exciting selection of poetic styles. Top notch writers will read their works, discuss the art of poetry and answer questions from the audience, offering inspiration in a nurturing, open environment to students, teachers and lovers of poetry.
The program ends with a half-hour open mic session at the end of the program, giving poets three minutes to read their work. Additionally, there will be book signings and the availability of phati’tude Literary Magazine for sale during the event.
Look for “Real Poetry, Real Talk” at a new site in 2013.
