Revolutionary Poetry

Come and explore the poetry of revolution with Adam Horovitz, Emily Barker, Dennis Gould and others, to be announced, as they present a fomentation of all the sorts and stripes of revolution (from quiet moments of revolt to the long revolutions of imperialism and its aftermath) that poetry can encompass. As Emma Goldman might have said: “If I can’t write poems about it, it’s not my revolution.” With that in mind, please bring your revolutionary poems and be ready to man the barricades of the open mic.
