We can't thank you enough for your support of The New York City Poetry Festival. For the past 5 summers hundreds of poets and thousands of poetry lovers have gathered on the green lawn of Colonels Row on Governors Island to celebrate, appreciate, discover, and simply enjoy poetry. Our team at The Poetry Society of New York takes great pleasure and great pride in being able to bring this quirky event to life every year. Of course, we can't do any of it without your help, and so we're asking for your help, like we do every year, in supporting this FREE festival's Kickstarter campaign.
We've said it before, and we'll say it again: WE CAN'T DO IT WITHOUT YOU. You, the poets, the organizers, the friends, and family of this community. New York City has the largest, most active community of poets in the world. This festival is a testament to that simple truth. It is the flower that blooms each summer, the ripe fruit of all of our efforts throughout the year. It's where we come together to hear each other, to see each other, and to support each other.
The festival has served nearly 15,000 attendees over the past 5 years. If each of them gave only one dollar, we'd be well past our $10,000 goal. Here is the link to the 2016 campaign: http://kck.st/21uaplY. Please make a donation if you so choose, and if you could, please share it on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, your mailing lists, and possibly in a few personal emails.
As long as this community is writing poems, we will continue building this festival each year. We love it so much. Thank you for your continued support!
