Join us for an exciting evening of poetry and conversation between poets Remica Bingham-Risher and Monica Youn. Bingham-Risher is the author of Conversion, winner of the Naomi Long Madgett Poetry Award and What We Ask of Flesh, which Lucille Clifton said “…sees with a brave eye and hears the music of all our languages, validating each.” Youn is the author of BLACKACRE, which won the William Carlos Williams Award of the Poetry Society of America and was described by the Chicago Tribune as “gorgeous and intellectually scintillating.” Fellow Taylor Johnson moderates. Free and open to the public. Refreshments served. Co-sponsored by The New School Creative Writing Program.

We carefully review the practices and policies of each contest before including it in the Writing Contests database, the most trusted resource for legitimate writing contests available anywhere.
