I invented swag.
     —Jay Z

Brooklyn Poets is dedicated to celebrating and cultivating the poets, poetry and literary heritage of Brooklyn, and one way we do that is by supplying the right swag. All proceeds from our swag sales go toward funding our programs, such as the Brooklyn Poets Reading Series, which is free and open to the public and for which we pay poets to read, and fellowships for our workshops so promising students in need can take them for free. So every time you buy a Brooklyn Poets T-shirt or sweatshirt, you get your own swag on and help multitudes of others get their swag on. You are large. You contain multitudes.
