As Biggie Smalls once said, Spread love, it’s the Brooklyn way. By becoming a member or making a donation, you help us award students fellowships so they can participate in our paid programs for free; offer our reading series for free and pay our poets to read; and offer more work-study opportunities for our interns. With your help, since the inception of our fellowship program in the fall of 2015, we’ve awarded 129 full fellowships and offered 129 partial awards to fellowship finalists and semifinalists—almost 100% of which have gone to students from traditionally underserved communities—and all together these students have saved over $59,000 in tuition.
All memberships below are good for one year. Brooklyn Poets is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization recognized under the Internal Revenue Code, so all your contributions are tax-deductible.
