Poets Out Loud: reading series

Poets Out Loud (POL) is Fordham University's poetry reading series, established in 1992. We draw audiences including many members of the New York poetry community, our own undergraduates and graduate students, and, thanks to our outreach program, a group of high school students as well. Each year the program features six evening readings. We are committed to representing a wide range of poetic styles and ethnicities in our choices of readers and to inviting both highly distinguished writers and emerging ones. Recent participants have included Eamon Grennan, Marilyn Hacker, Rachel Hadas, Edward Hirsch, and Willie Perdomo. Other POL activities include organizing a book prize, with the two winning selections published by Fordham University Press, and participating in other activities related to poetry, such as student writing prizes.
The Poets Out Loud reading series will feature Willie Perdomo, with shorter readings by Jordan Windholz, and high school students from outreach.
All events are free and open to the public. Registration is recommended but not required! Feel free to bring a friend.
