The New York City Poetry Festival

  • Colonel's Row, Governors Island Governors Island United States (map)

Building on our recent work with climate poetry and performance, we will have a table at the The New York City Poetry Festival this year! Together, we will create a collective poem about the climate crisis and how we can respond to make a better future. For inspiration, we will also have printed versions of the poems of our 14 Climate Speaks finalists. Come contribute a line!

Every year on the last weekend of July, The New York City Poetry Festival invites poetry organizations and collectives of all shapes and sizes to bring their unique formats, aesthetics, and personalities to the festival grounds. 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. More information about the festival can be found here.
