The 42nd Annual New Year's Day Marathon Reading
The Poetry Project at St. Mark's Church
New York, NY
Share this event:


There are three things to consider when the New Year's Day Poetry Marathon sweeps you into its gracefully uncouth embrace - what it is, what it was, and who you will be when it's over. An untamed gathering of the heart's secret, wild nobility - over 140 poets together revealing not just that a better life could exist, but that it already does, sexy and wise, rancorous and sweet, big hearted and mad as hell. An avenging engine of resistance and eager vehicle of the nascent year. The Marathon measures its success through insurrectionist reframings of the universe, an in-it-together courage that crafts a community out of the riot of lineages and traditions we all emerge from. This collective effort also helps fund as many as 65 additional events every year. It's our largest fundraiser, and arguably the most inspired ongoing literary event in the city.

This year's performers include: Heroes Are Gang Leaders, Hanif Abdurraqib, Julia Alsop, Penny Arcade, Ed Askew Band, Vyt Bakaitis, Jennifer Bartlett, Morgan Bassichis, Jim Behrle, Rijard Bergeron, Felix Bernstein, Anselm Berrigan, Edmund Berrigan, Jennifer Blowdryer, Stephen Boyer, Ernie Brooks with Peter Zummo and Jeanine Otis, Lee Ann Brown, Marie Buck, Steve Cannon, Wo Chan, Lonely Christopher, Yoshiko Chuma, Jace Clayton, CA Conrad, Todd Colby, John Coletti, Joey de Jesus, Ted Dodson, Thom Donovan, Maggie Dubris, Douglas Dunn, Marcella Durand, Andrew Durbin, Will Edmiston, Mel Elberg, Christine Elmo, Carlos Estrada, Betsy Fagin, Farnoosh Fathi, Carolyn Ferrucci, Jess Fiorini, Foamola, Tonya Foster, Joanna Fuhrman, Cliff Fyman, John Giorno, Aracelis Girmay, Philip Glass, John Godfrey, Ariel Goldberg, Nada Gordon, Stephanie Gray, Adjua Greaves, John S.
