Now in its twelfth year, the Festival is an annual celebration of poetry. It is the largest student-run poetry festival in New York State. 

The Sarah Lawrence Poetry Festival is dedicated to creating a forum for emerging and established poets, representing a diversity of subject, aesthetic traditions, and writers, to present their work alongside current Sarah Lawrence undergraduate and graduate readers. We are committed to maintaining this legacy for the benefit of both the College and the community.

Interested in attending? Reserve your spot!

Unfortunately, Natalie Diaz is no longer able to join us at the Festival this year.
