Poets Out Loud is a community of poetry at Fordham University at Lincoln Center. POL's mission is to provide opportunities for the creation, dissemination and enjoyment of poetry. The POL Reading Series presents free, year-round public readings by noted and emerging poets, serving the Fordham University community and New York City at large. The POL Book Series, run in coordination with Fordham University Press, issues two new full-length volumes of poetry annually, awarding publication and honoraria to the best manuscripts submitted in an international competition.
All readings are at 7 PM, 12th floor lounge, Lincoln Center Fordham campus (113 West 60 Street, a block from Columbus Circle subway.) All readings are free and open to the public.
