Thursday Morning Poets to Join in Global Demonstration for Peace, Justice, & Sustainability via 100 Thousand Poets for Change


WHEN: Friday, September 24, 2021, 6-7 pm EDT
To register for this event, go to: The Thursday Morning Poets joining 100 Thousand Poets for Change

In what will be only their second public appearance, Thursday Morning Poets-- who represent NYC’s broad cultural and ethnic diversity – go global, drawing on their unique lived experiences in reading of their original works of poetry in-concert with thousands of other poets from around the world to support peace, justice, and sustainability. TMP first met in an on-line prompt-based poetry workshop led by Queens Poet Laureate and Academy of American Poets Fellow Maria Lisella, in January 2021

The readers—who didn’t meet in-person until July at NYCPoFest2021—include artists, businesswomen, educators, mothers, journalists, a yoga instructor, and a 19-year-old Ukrainian student. 

Following their debut in-person appearance at this year’s New York City Poetry Festival on Governors Island, TMP will raise their voices online for social change as part of the 10th annual global demonstration led by 100 Thousand Poets for Change
 joining poets, musicians, and artists worldwide, from many languages, cultures, geographical regions, ethnicities, creeds, beliefs, and religious affiliation, in the call for lasting social, political, & environmental change.
