Celebrate National Poetry Month at Sarah Lawrence College’s 10th Annual Poetry Festival

 

Sarah Lawrence College is set to host its 10th Annual Poetry Festival this weekend  from April 12th-14th in Bronxville, New York. The annual three-day reading series, which features undergraduate and MFA poetry students reading their work alongside established poets, is the largest free poetry festival in New York.

The April festival is the culmination of months of planning by its entirely student run and directed panel who are responsible for reaching out to poets on and off campus. This year the panel has invited twelve poets to read alongside students including Henri Cole, D. Nurkse, Monica Ferrell and Jon Sands, the latter of which participated in NYWC’s Writing Aloud Reading Series last October as well as our Fort Greene Park Summer Literary Festival. This year, the festival will also include panels, a small press fair, and closes with  the launch of the twelfth issue of  LUMINAthe MFA program’s literary journal. All events are free and open to the public, making it the perfect way to honor National Poetry Month!
