Spontaneous Generation House is a space for gathering the energy of the festival into new collectively written work. All are invited to share the words and ideas they find to inspire them from the New York Poetry Festival. Poet Ashton Winslow will facilitate workshops to elicit your contributions and provoke your creative impulses. There will be materials for writing and drawing, transcribing and editing the poems that emerge. As a portfolio takes shape, written by everyone, you can then come to help read and perform the poems on a stage built out of your own words from the day. Come be part of it!
