In honor of National Poetry Month, the Voice asked none other than former U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins to gather a list of a few of his favorite New York poets to submit previously unpublished work to our poetry issue. Today, many of them are gathering for a veritable all-star poetry night at the Red Room at KGB. On the program are David Lehman, Joshua Mehigan, Suzanne Cleary, Donna Masini, Edward Hirsch, Rowan Ricardo Phillips, Philip Levine, Tom Sleigh, and John Allman. Get a taste of what’s in store this evening by calling our Dial-A-Poem service at 347-618-6376.
