WEIRDD (second “D” is silent) is a monthly, poetry-focused reading series at Books Are Magic in Gowanus, Brooklyn. WEIRDD highlights the twisted, odd, and off-kilter in poetry—poems that not only get squiggly, but also commit to it.

English is not the law. This is a space for all languages, with or without an English translation. That includes ASL (or other sign languages) and code. We also plan to project weird(d) shit, at the performers’ discretion.

In addition to 2-3 poets, each event will also feature a lecturer on various topics such as community activism, the esoteric, and/or arts crossover. The affect: immense rigor and attention bespeaking loving-kindness.
