Announcing the 2021 Sarah Lawrence College Poetry Festival

The co-directors of the 18th annual Sarah Lawrence College Poetry Festival are thrilled to announce that the festival will be taking place April 8–11, 2021, and for the first time ever, virtually! This past year has brought a lot of changes to how we share and connect, but we are looking forward to using all we’ve learned to come together and celebrate contemporary poetry and poets as a community. Mark your calendars for a remarkable event you won't want to miss!

The Sarah Lawrence College Poetry Festival is the largest open, student-run Poetry Festival in NY, and since 2003, we have been dedicated to the celebration of contemporary poetry and the creation of community around the art form. Previously, we have welcomed poets such as Anne Carson, Nicole Sealy, Jos Charles, Eduardo Corral, and many others. Our festival includes readings, panel discussions, generative sessions, craft talks, and more! We hope to see you there.
