Dia’s monthly Readings in Contemporary Poetry series, curated by poet and author Vincent Katz, stresses the experimental aspects of contemporary poetic practice. It highlights commonalities among poets and puts their diverse voices in conversation with one another.

The Readings in Contemporary Poetry series ran from 1983 until 2003 under the direction of Brighde Mullins. The series resumed in fall 2010.
