The Palm Beach Poetry Festival is a nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering the writing, reading, performance, and appreciation of poetry – by presenting an annual festival and other poetry events in Palm Beach County – featuring America’s finest poets.

The Palm Beach Poetry Festival has flourished for 11 years, presenting workshops with America’s most laurelled and engaging poets. Participants and auditors have hailed from over 24 States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Israel, Qatar, and Peru. They also host a special guest poet for readings and interviews. Some of their events combine poetry with other arts, including jazz (featuring Special Guest, former United States Poet Laureate, Robert Pinsky), dance, photography, painting and sculpture.
