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’ve discovered how to create community with poets in the virtual setting.

We’d love you to join us for our 18th year of workshops, readings, craft talks, one-on-one conferences, a Special Guest Interview, and the Beloved Poem Panel featuring all the faculty poets. Tuition still includes admission to all events, the Participants Open Mic Reading and access to virtual meeting rooms and a bookstore for connecting with our poetry community. You can book a one-on-one conference, and there’s no travel expense, no lodging expense, all from the safety of your home. Applications are now open using Submittable.

We would love to welcome you back to the festival in January 2022.
