ABOUT THE NEW HOPE POETS

The New Hope Beat Poets Society is an open forum with a mission - to write, laugh, and celebrate the literary arts..  The group was started by John Hensel, late author of Tales of a Suburban Gypsy and long time New Hope resident. 

Hensel was deeply committed to fostering and preserving the rich tradition of literary arts in New Hope, and established “Beat Night” as a forum for poets to allow for this exchange.
