Description: The mission and purpose of Albany Poets, Inc. is to increase awareness and activity of the art of poetry and spoken word in the Albany, New York, area. Albany Poets wishes to accomplish this by hosting poetry events, readings, open mikes, and workshops around the upstate New York area in order to promote the art and increase participation by both established poets in the community as well as new writers and performers. We wish to utilize the colleges and universities around the area in order to develop programs and events with students in an attempt to draw attention to Albany as a literary and cultural hub in the Northeast United States. Albany Poets, Inc. will also utilize its web presence (www.AlbanyPoets.com) as a way to showcase local talent in the areas of poetry and spoken word. The web site will also act as a community center, where visitors can find information on poets, readings, events, and links of interest to the art. The web site will feature a monthly calendar to highlight the numerous literary events in the Albany area. Visitors can also register to be included in official email lists and the AlbanyPoets.org Bulletin Board, where poets can post poems, news, reviews, and thoughts on the art.
