The 2023 Poets In The Park series in Albany’s Washington Park

Poets in the Park is celebrating over 30 years of bringing poetry and spoken word to the Robert Burns statue in Albany’s Washington Park. The series was started in 1989 by the late Tom Nattell and is now run by Albany poet and photographer Dan Wilcox.

The 2023 series kicks off this Saturday, July 15, with local author, playwright, poet, and recording artist Carol Durant and winners of the Tom Nattell Peace Poetry Prize from Albany High School.

Host Dan Wilcox tells us about the history of the series and what we can expect this year.
