Formerly the MiPO Reading Series (2006 and 2007), the series name changed when Amy King resigned as editor-in-chief from the online magazine, MiPOesias, in May 2008. Life took over, as did other projects and employment responsibilities, but Amy vowed to carry on the series, with a lot of help from the new co-curator, Ana Božičević.
The readings are held at Stain Bar in Williamsburg, Brooklyn (NYC) on the last Friday of every month (7 – 9 p.m.).
Stain is a unique arts lounge dedicated to local products and talent. In a place so cozy you’ll never want to leave, we invite you to enjoy: drinks from Stain’s NEW YORK-only list, from local wine and beer to our inventive wine mixed drinks, rotating art shows, New York’s famous jumbo soft-baked pretzels, free wireless internet, and the smoker-friendly garden open all year.
At each reading, you will hear a range of poetries and reading styles, as well as meet poets and appreciators, many who have traveled from the four corners. Please pass the word and invite your friends – we hope to see you at each month’s end, ready to share a word or two and a glass of something fresh!
