New Orleans Poetry Festival and Small Press Fair
April 18 - April 21
The New Orleans Poetry Festival and Small Press Fair aims to create a space for an inclusive and diverse group of writers to collaborate, share and influence each other while also being immersed in the distinct literary culture of New Orleans. As such, their goal every year is to bring in poets and performers from across the globe to share their work and research in topics not only specific to writing but to cultural, political and activist needs relevant to the current climate. The festival also hopes to showcase the best writers that New Orleans has to offer allowing visitors to partake in the writing spirit unique to the city. The Festival is highly participatory with events ranging from workshops where you will be generating writing to open mics where you can share your work to getting out on the dance floor to listen and dance to the poets with bands.
