Fight Harder

I DONT WANT TO LOOK BACK AT THESE YEARS AND THINK
“I SHOULD HAVE FOUGHT HARDER.” NOW IS THE TIME TO STAND UP.

this event is a strategic planning meeting for poets in nyc who want to discuss and get ready for the year of literary activism ahead… that way we can be proactive about all the bullshit coming our way, as opposed to reactionary to it.

This event is being planned quickly / organically. Literary Presses that will be present for the discussion and promoting this event are:

Nepantla & Undocupoets
Drunken Boat
The Operating System
No, Dear
Brooklyn Arts Press
Women Writers in Bloom Poetry Salon
Sibling Rivalry Press
Noemi Press
Weird Sister
Kundiman
The Poets Settlement
Newfound
Union Square Slam

Let Christopher Soto know if you would like to add your press or organization to this list. All you need to do is help invite folks to the event page and have a representative present at the meeting.

Tenative Agenda:
- What social/governmental issues do we want addressed in the coming year
- What literary activist issues do we want addressed in the coming year
- What strategies for activism have we seen be successful?
-Where and how do we focus our energy?
