Programs for 2018 are now closed. Check back here in January 2019 to join the 9th Annual NYC Poetry Festival.



  • For Teens ages 13+: Register for a one-day (either Saturday or Sunday) poetry workshop taught by a published poet. Participants will meet in age-based groups to write and revise original poetry, and explore the island on a poetry hike. Each day will culminate in a staged reading for family and friends. Participants must bring their own lunch.
  • For All: Island-wide scavenger hunt. Read, write, and find poetry (at your own pace) throughout the island and make your way to Colonel's Row (just outside building 410) where participants can add a line or two to the 2018 Youth Poetry Festival collaborative poem. Participants can also sign up to read their original writing at our staged readings taking place at 5:00 PM both Saturday and Sunday.
