The goal of this free event is to help aspiring poets, poetry lovers and creators of all kinds to gather in a community, and further their craft by mutually inspiring and celebrating various forms and styles of poetry.

The festival will be held at the Pacific Northwest College of Art.

Main programs, markets, interactive poetry experiments, and sensory decompression rooms will be located on the first floor of the building. Workshops and classes will take place on the third floor.

While the event can be accessed by kids, the festival is not geared towards age-appropriate activities or literary themes, so it’s at the parents’ discretion to bring their children.
