The 18th Annual Virtual Palm Beach Poetry Festival Workshop Faculty includes: Kim Addonizio, Laure-Anne Bosselaar, Chard deNiord, Mark Doty, Yona Harvey, John Murillo, Matthew Olzmann, and Diane Seuss.

Individual conference faculty poets are: Lorna Knowles Blake, Sally Bliumis-Dunn, Nickole Brown, Jessica Jacobs, and Angela Narciso Torres.

The 18th Annual Palm Beach Poetry Festival will take place January 10-15, 2022. We wish we could see you live in Delray Beach in 2022. Old School Square is undergoing extensive renovations this year, and as we transition from a home-bound existence to the resumption of outside social activities, we continue to create community with poets in the virtual setting.

We’d love you to join us for any or all of our events: workshops, readings, craft talks, one-on-one conferences, a Special Guest Interview, and the Beloved Poem Panel featuring all the faculty poets. All events are scheduled in Eastern Standard Time. Tuition includes admission to all events, the Participants Open Mic Reading, access to virtual meeting rooms, and a bookstore for connecting with our poetry community. You may book a one-on-one conference, with or separately from a workshop application. Applications are now closed, but you may reserve a one-on-one conference until December 2nd using Submittable. We would love to welcome you in January 2022.
