Jim Eve

Jim Eve and Mike Jurkovic

Jim Eve is the originator of the Calling All Poets Inc. Calling All Poets was a program that originated at the Howland Cultural Center when Jim was a board member there back in 1999. Along the way he partnered with Mike Jurkovic and together with the help of long time supporters move the program forward. The program obtained its own non-profit status in June of 2014 and currently resides at the Roost Gallery and Studio in New Paltz, NY. Jim, who writes poetry whenever the mood strikes him, considers himself more of a facilitator of poetry than a poet.

“I am a Poet. My writing is driven by journeys into nature as well as the inner journeys. When I found the CAPS, I found an environment. I would say that at CAPs – we take our poetry seriously, but not necessarily ourselves. There is the feeling that the readers here are deeply dug into their craft, while all are welcome and encour- aged to work their art. The place has that feel. After a night at the Roost I want to love reading more and I want to get better. I also want very much to come back.”
