OK, Pen World Voices happened in NYC and we (I and a bunch of cool and interesting Romanian poets of various ages and voices/styles: Elena Vladareanu, Constantin Vica, Razvan Tupa, Dan Sociu, Nora Iuga, Eugen Suman, Vasile Leac, Nina Cassian) had poetry readings at KGB BAR and RCINY.
I curated the reading at KGB - yea, I thought it would be fun and ironic to read there with the Romanian poets. What did "curating" mean: got us scheduled/approved there, it's a selective literary venue - it's not like everybody can read there, got my friend Sharon Mesmer on board to co-host cuz I knew the Romanian writers wouldn't be happy just with me, so I also invited Brandon from Calque who's gonna publish an issue with Romanian poetry in translation, meaning: with them, not with me cuz I write in English, but anyway I'm happy that the Romanian poets who came here, very talented people, most of them for the first time in NYC, were excited by the KGB Bar Reading and the responses they got. Razvan Tupa posted short videos with our readings on YouTube, here's the link to my GOOGLE ME! poem and you'll find there links to the other poets too:
