TINY TALKS will be a monthly series of short talks on poetry at Berl’s Brooklyn Poetry Shop beginning this fall 2016.

Poets, scholars, and others are invited to submit proposals for ten-minute talks on poetry related to the monthly theme. We encourage varied approaches—talks might address specific poems or poets, aesthetic or philosophical questions, poetic communities or occasions—and will select a combination of talks that makes each event as diverse as possible. Talk-givers will also participate in a Q&A and assign a writing prompt to the audience.

Those who live outside the NYC area are welcome to submit; although we can’t provide funding, we can try to help you find a place to stay.

Hosted by Becca Klaver, Jared White, and Farrah Field.
