Women Writers in Bloom Poetry Salon (WWBPS) Literary Salon & Open Mic Series is a NY-based literary salon series modeled after traveling Salons, popular during the Harlem Renaissance. Poet and author JP Howard has curated and nurtured the SALON for ten years! We are a forum offering writers of all levels a venue to come together in a positive and supportive space. WWBPS has a large LGBTQ BIPoC membership and is open to everyone. During the pandemic the Salon meets online monthly; everyone is welcome to join us. Once we can safely meet indoors in the future, we will resume our in-person salons. JP has been the recipient of Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC) grants from 2014 through 2021. The Salon has been featured in The New York Times, Literary Hub, Poets & Writers Magazine, Bryant Park Word for Word Reading Series, CUNY TV's Study With the Best cable tv show, and more.
