Get Your Poem On/ 27 New Year’s Day at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe

Mindy August 2013 Herald Square m  Hi everybody.  If you’d like to start 2015 with some poetry, there will be a FREE event lasting for ten hours from 2pm to midnight on 1/1/15.  Stay for as little or as much as you’d like.  There are over 160 readers.  Each gets 3 minutes.  There is a limited open mic throughout the day.  This alternative reading appreciates any donations of paperbacks for Books Behind Bars.

The Alternative New Year’s Day reading extravaganza will take place at the Nuyorican Poets Café, which is at 236 E. 3rd St., NYC.

This year, the event is titled, “Shadow of the Geode.”  Penny Arcade and Miguel Algarin are among those performing.  Su Polo traditionally creates a beautiful and intriguing stage design.

I, Mindy Matijasevic, will have my three minutes somewhere between 4 and 6pm.

On another note, an autobiographical prose piece of mine is included in here:

  Bronx Memoir Project

which is available at Barnes and Noble through Nook and at Amazon.

Peaceful year end / new year.

About Mindy Matijasevic

Writer of nonfiction prose and poetry; actress; comic; adult basic education instructor. The name of this blog was inspired by a former student, Camille Williams, who once, in a conversation, used the phrase "get my learn on." I loved it, and it stuck in my head.
