Poets Read Fiction

Join CLMP at Berl’s Brooklyn Poetry Shop on Tuesday, April 4, 2017 at 7 PM to hear four genre promiscuous poets read prose. A fiction reading during Poetry Month? Radical, we know. We’ll see you there.

With sincerest thanks to our Cultural Partner, Cave Canem!


Lee Ann Brown is the author of In the Laurels, Caught (Fence Books, 2013), which won the 2012 Fence Modern Poets Series Award, as well as three other collections of poetry. In 1989, Brown founded Tender Buttons Press, which is dedicated to publishing experimental women’s poetry.
