    Spoken Arts Group (SPAG): Mission Statement

    Sunday Best will present a series of spoken-word performances featuring fiction writers, poets, and dramatists, sometimes in collaboration with other artists. The series will pair local poets and writers with those from outside the neighborhood. We will program well established, undercelebrated and emerging poets and writers of ambition and talent, forging community in the process. We will present good, lively work, traditional, experimental or of whatever stripe, for the simple important joy of words and language, providing a window into the world of Northern Manhattan arts and artists and out onto the wider worlds of writing. We hope to provide an alternate scene complementary to that which has flourished downtown, creating a cultural oasis at the end of the A line for thirsty lovers of bookish and spoken word arts.
