NOPF 2021

Delighted to say that at long last the New Orleans Poetry Festival is returning this year — free, online, open to the public, and taking place all month long in April. For months we’ve been working behind the scenes to transition the festival into a virtual format, and are excited to kick it off this Thursday, April 1, with a launch event for the anthology I Am New Orleans.

I’ll be hosting an event on poetry and travel in the age of Covid on April 20, but until then, more details about all events, including how to register and a full schedule, are available at
