- ALREADY HAPPENED:
Poet’s Country No. 4 Launch
October 13, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Storming into the fall of 2018, Poet’s Country proudly presents the launch of their fourth issue, a variating-format journal featuring work by Carlie Hoffman, Bridget Lowe and Erika Meitner, as well an interview with Prof. Arash Abizadeh and an invitation to explore the Paris-based publishing experiment known as “Moltogone”.
A project that began in Bushwick’s notorious McKibbin Lofts as a literary gathering for MFA students across New York City, Poet’s Country is now a reading series and literary journal featuring intellectual and creative luminaries such as Noam Chomsky, Kimiko Hahn, Judith Butler and Caoilinn Hughes. Supported by a Kickstarter campaign from 2016, Poet’s Country is proudly partnered with Bowery Arts + Science to deliver new humane landscapes across cultural borders.
In 2018 Poet’s Country was named a finalist for the Community of Literary Magazines and Presses’ Firecracker Award for Independently and Self-Published Literature in the “Best Debut” category, while receiving an endorsement from Don Share, editor of Poetry magazine, who described Poet’s Country as a project that “boldly embodies a kind of excitement and verve long missing from the small-press world.”
