“Poets of Babel: If you are a poet, we speak the same language.”
Mission: “To love the spoken word, poetic & foreign”
Poets of Babel started in my living room with only two rules:
~You can read in ANY language. Bring a friend!
~Everyone participates. Poets: come share your poem with us. Poetry lovers: share a piece that touches you!
Now we are having public events at various venues in Israel, primarily in Jerusalem. Here are my poetry readings at Poets of Babel but more can be found on my YouTube channel or at the links below.

Hi Gila, Poets of Babel is in Jerusalem, Israel. The publications are Shoshana’s, the founding poet of Poets of Babel (me!). There is a link for my publications on this site (https://shoshanasarah.com/publications/ ). There are also videos here (https://shoshanasarah.com/poetry-readings/poets-of-babel-readings/) and on the YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/ShoshanaSarahLJ/videos) from Poets of Babel events and my performances there or at other poetry events. Thanks for your interest!
