Performing at Page Meets Stage with Zack Rogow in NYC!
The Page Meets Stage reading is a monthly poetry series that pairs more page-oriented, academic poets with poets who come from a more spoken-word or performative background. Both poets are on stage at the same time and read back and forth, poem for poem, sometimes answering each other, poem for poem, and other times taking the poetic conversation in a different direction. The evening is hosted by Taylor Mali, and it was a joy to share a stage with Zack Rogow! (Photo by Chris Rhee)
