Poets-in-residence provide an ongoing series of lectures, screenings, discussions, and poetry readings. In addition to live events, these poets are the editors of the 1000 Books by 1000 Poets series. A calendar of events will be under continual development. At any given time, poets are producing posters, editing books, writing poetry or conversing with visitors on issues in contemporary poetics. On the hour before closing each day, an international poetry reading will be convened via Skype.
Current poets-in-residence (1 March – 14 March): James Hoff (NYC), Felix Melia (UK), and Kristen Mueller (Berlin).
Former poets-in-residence (14 February – 30 February): Sophie Collins (UK), Deanna Havas (NYC), and Danny Snelson (Philadelphia). (30 January – 14 March): Harry Burke (UK), Rui An Ho (Singapore), Sophia Le Fraga (NYC), and Danny Snelson (Philadelphia).
Past readings are in the process of being transcoded for a reading and exhibition archive.
