The New York Poetry Festival showcases all of the different formats, aesthetics, and personalities of New York City reading series and collectives, in one place at one time. The festival intends to create branches between disparate poetry communities, and other artists and artisans, by bringing poetry out of the dark bars and universities and by placing it in the sun. The Poetry Society of New York will once again invite New Yorkers to come together for this two day festival to celebrate NYC’s vibrant poetry community. The event will include over 60 poetry organizations and 250 poets on its three main stages, plus an open mic, vendor's village, and children's festival complete with writing games and it's own, miniature stage!

This event takes place on July 29th and 30th from 11am to 6pm on Governors Island in New York City.
