This summer the Poetry Society of New York is teaming up with ThinkOlio to bring you the New York City Poetry Festival's first annual Tree Stump University, an outdoor educational venue for adults. ThinkOlio is a Brooklyn-based organization that reinvents adult education by designing innovative, salon-style classes with the best professors all over NYC. Boasting such class titles as "More Than A Hipster Touchstone: Neutral Milk Hotel’s In The Aeroplane Over The Sea" and "That Fresh Sound: Modern Poetry, Kanye West, And Shaking Your Mind Out of Its Rut", ThinkOlio's approach to teaching poetry is utterly unique. To sign up for an Olio at #nycpofest2018, please visit
