We are excited to announce Baruch November as the first featured poet for January 2020.
Baruch November has taught courses in Shakespeare, poetry, and writing at Touro College in Manhattan for more than a decade. His poems and short fiction have been featured in Paterson Literary Review, Lumina, New Myths, The Forward, Jewish Journal, and Poetica, and his collection of poems entitled “Dry Nectars of Plenty” co-won BigCityLit’s chapbook contest in 2003. His recent full-length collection of poetry is entitled “Bar Mitzvah Dreams.” Stephen Dobyns called the poems of that collection “powerfully made with strong beginnings and surprising conclusions.” November comes from a family of poets, and he has lived in many cities in the United States, but currently resides in Washington Heights, New York.
Following Baruch’s reading will be the open mic, so put a poem in your pocket and come read with us!
