The 18th annual festival will be all-virtual for six days of literary workshops, readings, craft talks, one-on-one conferences, poet panel, and more, January 10-15, 2022. “We went virtual for the first-time last January due to the pandemic, and in 2022 it will be because Old School Square is undergoing extensive renovations,” says Williamson. “Fortunately for poetry lovers everywhere, we’ve discovered how to create community with poets in the virtual setting—and there’s no travel expense, no lodging cost, just world class, award-winning poets experienced and enjoyed live from the comfort and safety of your own home.” Applications to participate in the 18th annual Palm Beach Poetry Festival workshops are available online at palmbeachpoetryfestival.submittable.com.
