THE POETRY INSTITUTE
– NEW HAVEN
Ameen-Storm Abo Hamzy
Thursday, March 16, 2017
In Arabic, the name Ameen means trustworthy and trusting. Ameen’s poetry is about trust, it deals powerfully with political and social issues, the human condition, love, humanity, and human sensibilities. A graduate cum laude of Norwich University with a Bachelor’s in English Literature, Ameen is a published poet, producer of poetry venues: Collin’s Diner Poetry Series (North Canaan, CT), Poetry is Music Poetry Festival, and live poetry on WSBS’s Art Beat show. His involvement in multiple artistic disciplines provides Ameen with the sharpness and depth to his poetry that will take your breath away. His stage presence is mesmerizing, his words are thoughtful and significant. An activist who is in love with life, his poetry will move you, inspire you, and make you feel warm inside.”
On the third Thursday of each month, The Poetry Institute Poetry Series celebrates an eclectic mix of poetic voices. Free. Refreshments. (And participants are invited to bring something to share.) Open mic. Outstanding featured readers. In a casual setting. Open to all members of the public (and even others).
