SCP Poetry and Culture Symposium

About this Event

The Society of Classical Poets is holding its first Poetry and Culture Symposium in New York City, 4 to 8 p.m. at the Princeton Club. The Symposium will feature prominent poets speaking on the revival of classical poetry and arts, a chance to meet and network with like-minded appreciators of good poetry, including the creators of the Society, and, of course, drinks (4 to 5 p.m.). Featured speakers tentatively include leading formalist poet Professor Joseph S. Salemi, leading British poet James Sale, cultural vanguard Michael Maibach, U.S. World War I Monument Sculptor Sabin Howard, and 2019 SCP Poetry Competition First Place Winner Adam Sedia.

*****

Note that earlier on the day of the Symposium, the Society will lead a reading (with audience participation) of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven" at Bryant Park, a short walk from the Princeton Club, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. The reading will be at the William Cullen Bryant Monument on the Upper Terrace of Bryant Park. The event will also feature the reading of poems by American greats such as Bryant and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, as well as recently departed greats Dick Allen and Leo Yankevich. There will also be an open mic. This is a free event. Email the Bryant Park SCP Reading host and featured poet James Sale to register: james@motivationalmaps.com.
