PHILLY POETRY DAY 2017
Leonard Gontarek, Coordinator
What Is Philly Poetry Day?
People say you can attend a poetry reading
almost every day in the Philadelphia area.
There is a lot of poetry in Philadelphia.
Philly Poetry Day is a chance for all poets
to show their stuff – to demonstrate how much
poetry there is in Philadelphia.
It is also an attempt to bring poetry
to a larger and not typical audience.
The idea is that on SATURDAY, APRIL 29, 2017,
from 12 AM to 12 PM, poetry will be everywhere.
