The Poetry Project: The Inaugural Allen Ginsberg Symposium

The Poetry Project: The Inaugural Allen Ginsberg Symposium

May 3, 2018 - May 5, 2018

The Poetry Project, Howl! Arts, and the Allen Ginsberg Estate are proud to announce the inaugural Allen Ginsberg Symposium.

From the mid-80s to the mid-90s, The Poetry Project held an annual symposium that featured readings, talks, panels and workshops. This spring, the Project is thrilled to reinvent this three-day event and expand its mission to provide a forum and network for our literary community. Allen Ginsberg saw the Project as a place where people could articulate their relationship to the most important national and global problems of the time, and believed that the planet needed imagination and the avant-garde spirit of poetry to survive.

“After the thrill of the 50th Anniversary celebration last year and another energetic New Year’s Day Marathon, The Poetry Project looks forward to making the symposium an annual opportunity to bring poets together at the church,” says executive director Stacy Szymaszek.

Featuring readings, panel presentations, and workshops by Anselm Berrigan, Ken Chen, Samuel R. Delany, Adjua Gargi Nzinga Greaves, Erica Hunt, Rin Johnson, Filip Marinovich, Sharon Mesmer, Lara Mimosa Montes, Alice Notley, Julie Ezelle Patton, Trace Peterson, Ed Sanders, sam sax, Patricia Spears Jones, Anne Waldman, and Rachel Zucker.

All events take place at St. Mark’s Church. Readings and panel are free. Workshops are sliding scale $20–$50. Space is limited in the workshops and pre-registration is required; please visit The Poetry Project website to register.

These responses reflect how members of the Howl community have participated in online spaces to keep the spirit of our art education programs alive. “In March, I was hospitalized with Covid-19. The Isolation Station was just starting. Organized by Cynthia Powell, me, and some other folks, Darke Attoms, etc. The main idea [was] to create an image…
