POETS & WRITERS IS MORE than a magazine. We are a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving creative writers. We pay fees to writers giving readings and leading workshops, provide information and advice to authors, and help them connect with one another and with audiences.

Poets & Writers’ fifteenth annual Intergenerational Reading was held on June 25, 2016. Barnes & Noble Booksellers generously hosted the event at its flagship store at Union Square in New York City. Poet Regie Cabico served as master of ceremonies.

Each year, seniors and young adults who have participated in writing workshops supported by our Readings & Workshops program are invited to share their writing with one another. It is a rare opportunity for New Yorkers of different generations to exchange work as peers. This year more than three dozen writers, some of whom are pictured above, participated in the event.
