Wake: Up to Poetry
Irish poets in New York City this weekend for 6th Annual PoetryFest
This coming weekend in New York City will be an exciting one for the poetry community. The 6th Annual PoetryFest (November 7–9), is a three-day celebration of contemporary Irish and American poetry, featuring lectures, readings and more. Over the course of the weekend, ten poets will be featured, including Vona Groarke, Peter Fallon and Rita Ann Higgins, and many of the readings are free to attend.
We are grateful that establishments like the Irish Arts Center, the Glucksman Ireland House at NYU, Poetry Ireland and The Irish Institute sponsor events that bring the unique voice of Irish poetry to America. If you will be in or near New York City this weekend, the festival will be held at the Irish Arts Center at 553 West 51st Street.
