An Evening of Poetry with RIPA

April 14, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This year the Academy of American Poets is celebrating the twenty-fifth anniversary of National Poetry Month.  With bulbs finding the sun, trees revealing their buds, and spring migration not far behind, we have chosen to celebrate with an evening of (virtually reading) poetry.  
Terese Svoboda and Elizabeth Howard will engage in a conversation around poetry and introduce poets reading their own work.  

If you are interested in submitting a recording of your work, please email it to [email protected]. Record your reading on Zoom or on your phone. Identify yourself and say a few words about the poem you are reading. Please submit your videotaped recording no later than March 31st.  

If you would like to join us for the conversation on Wednesday, April 14th, please register on Eventbrite. Event will take place on zoom
