Hosting the Phoenix Poetry Series has been such a pleasure for me. I love interacting with the lively audience and open mic readers, booking the best poets and musicians we can find in NYC and elsewhere. Stop by Swift’s, 34 e 4th St., if you have some wonderful art you want to share with us. We may even book you for a feature! Every Monday night. Sign up at 6:30pm. We’d love to meet you!


As host of the Phoenix Reading Series founded by poet Michael Graves, I’d like to extend my thanks to our supporters. It’s because of you our success is growing. If you’re a poet out of state, we have started to book writers nationwide. Take a trip to NYC and we may feature you!
