Join the William Carlos Williams Poetry Symposium and the Meadowlands Museum in celebrating a launch of the Red Wheelbarrow Poets #10 anthology. The afternoon will feature readings from many of the 52 area poets included in the anthology, as well as an open mic.
The Red Wheelbarrow Poets began as the WCW Poetry Cooperative of Southern Bergen County which was cofounded by poet John J. Trause Janet Kolstein, whose poetry has been Instigatorzine, Lips, The Poetry of Place: North Jersey in Poetry, and the Newstead Abbey Byron Society Review. She is a member of both the American and International Byron Society. An artist as well, she is a member of the hob’art cooperative gallery in Hoboken, NJ, and exhibits throughout the tristate area. Her collage work is featured on the cover and throughout the #10 anthology.
