Second Sunday Spoken Word

Second Sunday Spoken Word is the first and only regularly scheduled monthly event devoted to the Spoken Word. We welcome all writers, including lyricists, to share their work on the second Sunday of every month. We believe in speaking out and are dedicated to giving people a voice. We are open to all readers, genres, and formats.

Spoken Word Chairperson Robin Lampman is moving back to New Mexico at the end of September. We thank Robin for the amazing job she has done over the past four years to organize and present monthly Spoken Word programs. In addition to gathering hundreds of writers, poets and musicians her hard work, perseverance and winning smile have allowed her to establish partnerships and collaborations with many local organizations including the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Group,  The Staten Island Pride Center, MakerSpace NYC, Labyrinth Arts Collective, and the New York Public Library. Robin has written and received four Poets & Writers grants that were awarded to local wordsmiths.

We wish Robin good luck and  much happiness in this new chapter of her life. She will be missed!
