Scenes from the NYC Poetry Festival!

“The purpose of the New York City Poetry Festival has been to liberate poets and their work from the dark corners of bars, bookstore, and coffee shops and their halogen-lit college campuses, and to bring together as many NYC poets as possible, in the bright light of day, to meet, mingle, and collaborate.”

Here’s Jeanne-Marie Osterman, with copies of her poetry collection, Shellback, and Christopher X. Shade’s Shield the Joyous, at the 10th Annual Celebration on Governors Island!
