Join us at our monthly poetry showcase this month at The SET. This month’s featured…
Tomorrow, Saturday, January 31st from 1-4pm join The Mix Coffeehaus as they welcome photographer and film producer Dondre Green who will be screening his latest work, ‘Bronx Narratives’.
After the event, several poets will hold a poetry reading and then the mic will be open for any poets out there who want to get up and spit some lyrics for the crowd.
Check out a teaser clip of ‘Bronx Narratives’
Check out this poem in which the writer, Alexander The Griot, takes us across our beautiful Bronx through a journey of words hitting all corners of our borough.
April is National Poetry Month and to that end, we’d like to share some words from a Bronx Poet who’s has graced the stages of the Nuyorican Poets Cafe, El Museo del Barrio, and the Bronx Museum (among many others) when he’s not walking the halls of justice at Bronx Family Court as an Officer (you can catch him this Thursday, April 24th at the Andrew Freedman Home).
The Bronx is Poetry! that is why I am beyond excited to announce an Open Mic and Chapter book release on April 24th , that will be held in the Bronx at the historical Andrew Freedman home located at 1125 Grand Concourse (Corner of McClellan street) from 7-10pm. Free admittance, $5.00 suggested donation.
April is National Poetry Month so I decided to search for poems on the Bronx. Instead of finding poems, the first thing I came across was this amazing 13 year old girl from the Bronx named Kioni Marshall aka Popcorn.
Check out these two amazing videos that were featured in the Daily News last year:
February 23, 2014, two classrooms on opposite sides of the globe were connected for an exciting first step into an on-going international poetry exchange project. The Japanese-Bronx Poetry Exchange is the first program of its kind, bridging the cultural divide between students in the Bronx and Japan through the use of poetry and video conferencing.
I received this from a friend Bronx resident, James “Peach” McClory (and published poet!) on a wonderful program to get out boys to read:
I am participating in a program that a calls for MEN to participate in the the first annual “Real Men Read” initiative at PS 333 in the Bronx, New York. This initiative is to get boys interested in reading and encourage and motivate literacy in the lives of young boys.
