CPC Presents: A Summer Poetry Gathering

The Chicago Poetry Center presents an opportunity for Chicago’s poetry community to come together and celebrate the season!

On July 20, 2022, the Chicago Poetry Center will gather poets and poetry fans from across the city to celebrate summer and our ability to unite as a community.

The first part of the evening will include a showcase of CPC’s Poets in Residence including Fullamusu Bangura, Larry Dean, Teresa Dzieglewicz, Isaac Ginsberg Miller, Tarnynon Onumonu, Timothy David Rey, and Joy Young, followed by Adrian Matejka, the new editor of Poetry.

Following the performance, we will move outdoors for beverages, snacks, poetry activities, and community building.

Masks are required for the inside performance portion of the event.

Tickets for the event are available here. Doors will open at 6 p.m., with performances beginning promptly at 6:30 p.m.
