Runner-up for L Magazine‘s “2011 Best Reading Series” in Brooklyn, Stain of Poetry (founded in 2006) is curated by poets Joanna Penn Cooper, Jenny Zhang, Erika Moya and J. Hope Stein. Previous hosts were Steven Karl and Christie Ann Reynolds and founder Amy King, and Ana Bozicevic.  For more information about your hosts, click here.

The readings are held on the last Friday of every month (7 – 9 p.m.)After three years at Stain Bar, in the summer of 2009 we moved to our wonderful new venue, Goodbye Blue Monday in Brooklyn. An art and music space, library, bar, sculpture garden & magic cave, Goodbye Blue Monday is at 1087 Broadway in the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn: to get there, take the JMZ trains to Myrtle Ave or the J to Kosciusko St, walk a few blocks to the corner of Dodworth St & Broadway, and take a plunge.

At each reading, you will hear a range of poetries and reading styles, as well as meet poets and appreciators, many who have traveled from the four corners. Please pass the word and invite your friends – we hope to see you at each month’s end, ready to share a word or two and a glass of something fresh!
