“Poetry Is – A Sound Experience” is a local performance collective uniting poets and musicians to create unique poetry “reading” experiences with improvisational music. Sometimes entirely unrehearsed, these music and poetry moments are unpredictable and joyful community-building sound-bites that transform the atmosphere of the poetry reading into a dynamic space.

This experience was conceived with the help of Sarabande Books and the Sarabande Young Professionals Board.

Future performances include:
October, Portland Museum
November, Writer’s Block Festival with Louisville Literary Arts
November, Frazier Museum in downtown Louisville.

Poetry Is Productions brings poetry into all that we do. With our name borrowed from a poet’s manifesto, our goal is to create art with a broadened sense of the definition of what “Poetry Is.”

(For You. For Me. For All.)
