Come hear readings from the Art Omi writers-in-residence at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe in NYC. Distinguished writers and translators from around the globe will share new and in-progress writing produced during their residence at Art Omi. Hear an uncommon variety of writing—provocative, funny, innovative, and surprising literary voices from a range of traditions, all in one place.

Since 1973, the Nuyorican Poets Cafe has served as a home for groundbreaking works of poetry, music, theater, and visual arts, and was once called “the most integrated place on the planet” by Allen Ginsberg.
