In 2017, the Festival offered its first Poetry Jam which was a rousing success. It was truly inspirational and gave the audience a chance to hear many different voices from our community. We are excited to offer this opportunity once again at the 2019 Festival. You will find the Poetry Jam on the Community Stage in the northeast corner of the Sculpture Park.
A Poetry Jam works by allowing aspiring and professional poets the opportunity to get on stage and share their work. It can take the form of a dramatic reading, a simple recitation, with music or without, whatever best represents the poem! Just keep in mind there is a time-limit of 10 minutes per poet.
Sign-ups will begin right here on our website on the first of March 2019!
