POETRY TO THE PEOPLE!
First-ever poetry reading with just @peggyperduepoet.
I’ll be outside the WeWork building on the sidewalk (public space!) reciting my poetry, whether anyone’s there to listen or not. But I really hope you’ll come to listen! During your lunch. On your errands. Taking a stroll. I’d love to see some familiar faces in the crowd, but I hope to have all sorts of new ones too.
I want to make poetry for the people, who it’s always been for. Not academics. Not for the pretentious. It’s not classist. I want so badly to change how we see poetry, and how it can affect our lives.
Come experience poetry one of the most powerful ways it can be!
