New Orleans Poetry Festival Open House
New Orleans Poetry Festival presents its 4th year in 2019, hosted by co-directors Bill Lavender and Megan Burns and fueled by an amazing team of local poets who coordinate and run the festival from planning to execution. We are an all volunteer led festival offering poetry readings, panels, discussions, performances, workshops and a small press book fair over 4 days. Drawing over 300 participants from around the globe, we expect this year to be even more lively, more exciting and more collaborative and community focused than ever.
Do you want to be involved?
Come out to the open house to learn about opportunities to be a volunteer during the festival, coordinate in the planning or ask questions about submitting a proposal and other ways to perform.
Co-director Megan Burns and several coordinators who have worked with us for years will be on hand to answer any questions.
Free drinks and snacks provided.
