ARS Poetica | Summer Poetry Series | Curated by Yesha Townsend

This Summer Yesha Townsend in conjunction with The Chewstick Foundation will curate an event to celebrate the beauty and artistry that is “poetry”. The “Ars Poetica” series will take place the third Thursday of every month to allow the genre of poetry to be featured on its own uninterrupted night, as each poet is given the time to have a focused view of their work, to have it stand on its own and be experienced, interpreted and pontificated upon in the same way as visual art or theatre. Ars Poetica simply broken down means the art of poetry, about the poetry, about the poets delivering it, uninterrupted, unyielding.
