Split This Rock Poetry Festival 2020

March 26 @ 8:00 am - March 28 @ 5:00 pm

Split This Rock Poetry Festival: Poems of Provocation & Witness 2020

In a high stakes election year, we gather to combat despair and take action in the midst of it, to celebrate communities targeted by violence, to imagine what it means to thrive in the midst of struggle, and to be equipped as artists living at the center of public life and social change. Join us to invoke poetry for liberation and against repressive forces that would have us divided.

Every two years, Split This Rock Poetry Festival calls poets, writers, educators, activists, and scholars together for three days of readings, workshops, panel discussions, youth programming, open mics, and activism — plus, a book fair! Featuring some of the most socially significant and artistically vibrant poets today, the Festival offers opportunities to speak boldly for justice, build connections and community, and celebrate the many ways poetry can be a practice for social change.

Online Registration is OPEN until Friday, February 28, 2020. Register Today.
Early Bird Rates are available until Friday, January 31, 2020.
