Palm Beach Poetry Festival

The Palm Beach Poetry Festival is an annual event that takes place at the Delray Beach Center for the Arts. Each year, aspiring poets from all over the world travel to Delray Beach to improve their writing and generate new poems in eight workshops led by our award-winning faculty. Featured poets include winners of the Pulitzer Prize, National Book Award, National Book Critics Circle Award, U.S. Poet Laureates—the most celebrated poets writing in America today. Audiences in the Crest Theatre include participants and the general public, who enjoy evening readings, interviews, talks on craft, discussion panels, book signings, and more. America's most exciting performance poets, all past slam masters, perform at the end of the festival late Saturday night. Six days and evenings of poetry events not to be missed.
