Albany Poets will be bringing poetry and spoken word to Art on Lark on Saturday, June 11. We will be at the Washington Stage at 12:30pm with some of the finest poets in the upstate New York area.

Last year poets Jill Crammond Wickham, Ed Rinaldi, Rebecca Schumejda, and Mojavi shared their work with a very enthusiastic audience and this year will be no different. Albany Poets will be announcing the poets who will be performing in the coming days, so stay tuned.

Art on Lark is one of the best arts festivals in the country with its mix of visual art and performance. Musicians (and friends of Albany Poets) Bryan Thomas and Olivia Quillio will be on stage along with local favorites Erin Harkes, Alta Mira, The Red Lions, and more.

Here is the info from the Lark Street BID:
