Gino Franco Figlio
A Sunday evening traditon among writers in New York,
ZBRS was founded in 1993 by Joe Elliot
& has since been hosted by Douglas Rothschild, Brendan Lorber,
Marcella Durand, Anselm Berrigan, among others
Originally at the legendary Biblio's in Tribeca,
it moved to Zinc on Houston Street in 1995 & again
in 2007 to its current righteous location.
the course of it's 600+ readings to date, ZINC-TRS has welcomed poets from five
and has paired established & emerging writers from many different traditions ranging from the
extremely experimental to the unadulterated lyric to the immensely performative.
perky, inscrutable & outrageous, ZINC-TRS seeks to connect the impossible
with the irresolvable
& leave everyone more open to the world around them then they were when they entered the place.
donation goes to the poets.
If you don't have it, don't worry, come anyway
