Poetry Reading at Mood April 26th!

REZ Reading Series will be presenting A Poetry Marathon on April 26 from 7-9:30 at mood Restaurant and Bar in Kew Gardens. In honor of National Poetry Month (and Shakespeare's 447 birthday which just happens to be on April 26th!), the series has chosen to showcase as many local poets as possible during the month of April. Kew Gardens and its surroundings is filled with a large number of poets so on this night, we will be showcasing 12 poets. In addition, the Poet Laureate of Queens, Paolo Javier will be joining us to give the night a truly Queens poetic touch. Please join us.

  1. The REZ Reading Series is really not nearly as poetry focused as it is focused on books and short stories (for example, if you’re booked as a feature, and you happen to be a poet, it will be assumed that you’ve never been published—therefore, you’re given only five (5!) minutes).

    Poets looking for a much more representative environment in Queens may want to check out the jazz bar Terraza 7 on Gleane Street just off Roosevelt Avenue in Jackson Heights. Poets booked to feature there read anywhere from a minimum of fifteen minutes to around forty-five minutes—regardless of whether or not they’ve been published.

    Concerning open-mike poetry and/or music performance opportunities, Terraza 7 definitely does offer these.


Please leave a comment and let us know if it is not letting you leave one so we can resolve that problem. And Keep trying! The site gets a little screwy sometimes...
