Poetry Festival



Media Inquiries

April 24-26, 2020

Since 2003, the Sarah Lawrence College Poetry Festival has presented emerging and established poets from across the country alongside current Sarah Lawrence undergraduate and graduate student readers. Our mission is to bring a wide array of contemporary poetic voices to campus, and to celebrate the vibrancy and essentiality of the art form. The weekend is centered on creating community with visiting poets, students, and residents of the greater New York City area, and facilitating access to educational resources for writers of all ages and backgrounds. The event will offer readings, craft talks, generative workshops, multimedia programming, and shared meals.

This event is free and open to the public. We welcome all community members to join us in celebration. For updates, schedule announcements, and fundraising event information, follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
