Contribute Now — NYC Poetry Festival Needs $2,500 in 24 Hours

UPDATE: PSNY reached its goal, and the festival is on.

The Poetry Society of New York’s Kickstarter Campaign aimed at raising operating costs for this summer’s annual Poetry Festival will go unfunded unless they raise $2,500 by tomorrow afternoon. The event is already slated to feature an armada of excellent poets, including Paul Muldoon, Mark Doty, Matthea Harvey, and Joyelle McSweeney, along with a Vendors Village and the generally placid and tranquil setting of Governors Island.

The event has been a smash in the past, and promises to be so again — contribute today! And check out this promotional video:
