Saint Mark's Poetry Project Collection

Ephemera and Audio Recordings of Poetic Readings from the St. Mark's Project, (over 1,000 items).

The Saint Mark's Project is part of a community arts program which has been operating out of St. Mark's Church in the Bowery since 1966. The Project has been the site of readings by hundreds of poets over the years, including Allen Ginsberg, W. H. Auden, Frank O'Hara, Ted Berrigan and many others. In 2006, the Library of Congress acquired the Projects archives, which include flyers, newsletters, announcements, as well as audio archives of their events. These are probably the most significant post-war poetry readings in existence.
