Robert Milby

Robery Milby is probably the busiest man in poetry business. He works tirelessly to bring poetry and spoken word to as many people as possible each and every month. Even though February is a short month, that is not slowing Robert down. Here is what he has planned for this month in the Hudson Valley. Be sure to check out some of these events if you are in the area and let Robert know how much we appreciate all that he does.

We are currently working on a brand new events calendar for the poetry and spoken word open mics and readings in upstate New York (this means you guys in the Hudson Valley, too) that we will be launching in the next few weeks. If you are a host or venue that is putting on poetry events, please send us an email at info@albanypoets.com with the information and we will add it to our ever-growing calendar. Albany Poets has been posting and promoting the poetry and spoken word of upstate New York and publishing an events calendar since we began in 2000 and we strive to continue that tradition to bring the art to the people.
