“Up Late: 2020-2021”: The Poetry Project’s New Year’s Day Marathon Reading

The Poetry Project’s 2021 New Year’s Day Marathon will be a 24-hour continuous, online broadcast featuring readings and performances by more than 200 poets, writers, artists, and musicians. The marathon poetry reading will commence with an 11pm to midnight countdown on December 31, 2020, with a special feature from the clocktower of St. Mark’s.

The 47th Annual New Year’s Day Marathon will begin at 11PM EST on December 31st at poetryproject.org/marathon and will be simultaneously multi-streamed to The Poetry Project’s Facebook Live and YouTube live accounts. An hour by hour schedule of the broadcast is forthcoming.

This evening promises to be a “living anthology” of contemporary poetry replete with the discontinuous communities of improvised alignments. The best way to think about this event, in fact, is to consider it a considerably expanded updating of an anthology edited about about 30 years ago by Andrei Codrescu, one of the poets scheduled to read in this gathering. Codrescu, who was also editor of the literary magazine EXQUISITE CORPSE for many years, assembled a blend of maverick poets from the St. Mark’s Poetry Project scene as well as some poets associated with the first increment of the Language movement.
