4th Annual NYC Poetry Festival on Kickstarter

The Poetry Society of New York hopes to raise $10,000 for the 4th Annual New York City Poetry Festival. The organizers will use the money to host a 2-day event on Governor’s Island.

Some of the poets who have signed on to appear at this event include Paul Muldoon, Mark Doty, and Joyelle McSweeney. We’ve embedded a video about the project above. Here’s more from the Kickstarter page:

“This year we will welcome back more than 50 New York City poetry groups, including venerable institutions, upstarts, small presses, local reading series, literary journals, high school poetry teams, and more to The Festival’s three stages. If year’s past are any indication, over 250 poets will present and wow those gathered with their moment at the mic.”

Welcome to our Kickstarter Publishing Project of the Week, a feature exploring how authors and publishers are using the fundraising site to raise money for book projects. If you want to start your own project, check out How To Use Kickstarter to Fund Your Publishing Project.
