Gander.tv and InVerse is a grass roots program that could change all that."
Taylor Mali, famed American slam poet, humorist, teacher and founder of Urbana Poetry Slam, said, "We produce a fantastic, thought provoking, live poetry slam every week at the Sidewalk Café. It's a more critical look at the culture and politics of slam. This is a first ever program that will expand our audience worldwide."
Angelo Verga, Owner of Cornelia Street Café and past NYC Poet Laureate whose poems have appeared in scores of journals, including The Village Voice, said, "Friends, including important friends you haven't met yet, are talking, writing, and waiting. Gander.tv will be bringing our unique NYC contributors to the world over the Internet. This is an amazing first time collaboration of these literary organization, who are normally fierce competitors."
This program will also be targeted to secondary and college literary programs, noted Dan Gallant, Executive Director of the Nuyorican Poets Café. "This is an initiative that will allow students, teachers and school administrators' access to top notch performance poets and engaging poetry, using spoken word as education, confidence building, and professional advancement for students from a wide variety of communities."
