Every year on the last weekend in July, the New York City Poetry Festival unites the vast and diverse New York City poetry community on Governors Island.
The festival invites poetry organizations and collectives of all shapes and sizes to bring their unique formats, aesthetics, and personalities to the festival grounds, which are ringed with a collection of beautiful Victorian houses and tucked beneath the wide, green canopies of dozens of century old trees. By uniting the largest community of poets in the country and offering a unique setting for literary activity, the New York City Poetry Festival electrifies arts and literature and brings poetry to new light in the public eye.
This year, Visible Poetry Project will be coordinate the 2nd Annual Film Festival at NYCPoFest. Stay tuned for more details!
