About Women Writers in Bloom Poetry Salon (WWBPS): Women Writers in Bloom Poetry Salon is a Literary Salon Series modeled after traveling Salons, popular during the Harlem Renaissance. Poet and author JP Howard has curated and nurtured the SALON for over SIX years! JP was a proud Split This Rock 2017 Freedom Plow Award for Poetry & Activism finalist for her work on behalf of the Salon and was recognized as such in Washington, DC in April 2017 at an awards ceremony. We are a forum offering women writers, especially, of all levels, a venue to come together in a positive and supportive space. WWBPS has a large LGBTQ POC membership and is open to all. JP has been awarded Brooklyn Arts Council for the Brooklyn-based portion of the Salon Series for the last four years. The Salon has been featured in Poets & Writers Magazine ( http://www.pw.org/content/from_poets_writers_inc_22 ), Bryant Park Word for Word Reading Series (forthcoming in summer 2018 & previously in summer 2016), CUNY TV's Study With the Best cable tv show, and THE ARTISTS FORUM cable TV show.
