CALLING ALL POETS! Westbury Arts is proud to host our third annual virtual Poetry Slam this January! The event, which will be held live via Zoom, will give poets hailing from Long Island, NYC, and elsewhere a chance to read their work live, talk about their inspirations, and answer questions about their poetry from the event’s host and audience (who can leave comments via the chat feature). All poetry styles are welcome, such as haiku, sonnets, free verse, and so on. The subject matter of the poems can range in tone and topic. However, since this is an event that is intended for all audiences, no poems will feature excessive foul language, substantial violence, or graphic sexual content. The poetry reading event will be recorded and subsequently uploaded to YouTube for the public to enjoy long after the event. Poets wishing to participate should send their contact information (email and telephone) to Meagan Meehan at
WHAT IF I’M NOT A POET? You are invited to an enjoyable and enlightening evening as poets recite their works and offer their sources of inspiration, keen perspectives, and how they construct their works. This is a chance to hear new and exciting poets share their words and stories.
Register for FREE on Eventbrite. The Zoom link for this event will be sent out the day of the event.
