A Message from the Director -- Donate Now

Your financial support helps us continue to bring world-renowned poets to Palm Beach County. They teach workshops to writers from across the country, thrill a growing audience for poetry with readings and craft talks, and encourage the creation, performance and appreciation of poetry.

Your donations assist with our educational outreach programs: the festival-sponsored Palm Beach County High School Poetry Contest; Teen Poetry Project; and organization of poetry discussion groups and special poetry events throughout Palm Beach County.

Every donation helps the festival provide the best that poets and poetry have to offer the community.
