New Hope Poets are at NHArts every month.

In 2013 the Society along with the Center sponsored The New Hope Poetry Festival – a full evening of reading by local and guest poets. 2014 brings a first collaboration, The New Hope – New Zealand International Festival of Poets on May 31. Details will be posted as the date approaches.

The New Hope Beat Poets Society is an open forum with a mission – to write, laugh, and celebrate the literary arts..  The group was started by John Hensel, late author of Tales of a Suburban Gypsy and long time New Hope resident.

Hensel was deeply committed to fostering and preserving the rich tradition of literary arts in New Hope, and established “Beat Night” as a forum for poets to allow for this exchange.

Beat Night is the second Wednesday of every month at 7:00 PM at the New Hope Art Center. All poets and listeners are welcome to attend, to share and listen to original work.
