The Poetry Society Of New York Announces Its Annual Kickstarter Campaign For The New York City Poetry Festival

The Poetry Society of New York is pleased to announce the launch of the New York City Poetry Festival’s annual Kickstarter campaign ( http://kck.st/1IrNwbe ).

The New York City Poetry Festival ( newyorkcitypoetryfestival.com ), to be held this July 25th and 26th on Governors Island, is going to be bigger and better than ever in 2015. More than 75 poetry organizations, small presses, reading series and other collectives will present over 250 poets, including headliners (brought to you by the Poetry Society of New York), Nick Flynn, Patricia Spear Jones, David Matlin, and Fran Quinn. For a complete lineup, visit newyorkcitypoetryfestival.com/lineup.

The festival includes a Children’s Poetry program, complete with creative writing exercises and its own fourth stage. The festival also features an open mic area, where attendees can explore their poetic voices; a Vendor’s Village, where artists, artisans, booksellers, and food makers can sell their wares; and poetry generating, interactive art installations throughout.

According to organizers Stephanie Berger and Nicholas Adamski, “This year our Kickstarter goal is $12,000, which we will combine with an additional $10,500 in grants, private funding, and earned revenue from last year’s event to bring our operating budget for 2015 to $22,500. The New York City Poetry Festival is free and open to the public, and over the course of its four year tenure on Governors Island, it has served nearly 10,000 attendees. Now, all we ask is for less than $2 from each of them.”The New York City Poetry Festival is artist and volunteer run, and all funds raised from the Kickstarter will go towards the rental of stages, sound systems, generators and tents; paying for security fees, liability insurance, licensing fees, and other safety precautions; and the purchase and transportation of other equipment to and from the island. The Kickstarter compaign concludes on May 21st, 2015. Visit the page and consider making a donation today: http://kck.st/1IrNwbe .
