05 Jan Moonstone
While we have introduced many distinguished nationally-known poets through our programs, our real objective is to support emerging artists. Many of yesterday’s “emerging” poets have become household names. The Moonstone Poetry Series presents about 80 readings a year at four venues with two featured poets followed by an open reading. Our Philly Loves Poetry program on PhillyCAM (public access television) looks at the amazing variety of poetry groups in Philadelphia through discussion and reading. Our newest program is New Voices: Philadelphia’s Emerging Poets, being presented at the South Philadelphia Branch Library. New Voices features poets under the age of 25, including high school and college students.
