We are excited to announce this year's venue:

Pacific Northwest College of ART

511 NW Broadway, Portland, OR 97209


Save the date for Portland’s Second Winter Poetry Festival, January 11-12, 2020 at Pacific Northwest College of Art!

In addition to the poets’ market, workshops, and readings from 2018, thanks to generous support from the Regional Arts & Culture Council we will be featuring craft talks, interactive writing experiments, a sensory-sensitive reading room, multimedia poetry, open mics, and more!

Many thanks to last year’s festival goers who celebrated the holiday season with us at the IPRC. For this second year, we picked a time when the year is shiny and fresh, after the holiday dust has settled. January is the time to focus the returning sunlight on your own most precious creative impulses.

Poets and poetry lovers, join us January 11-12, 2020 for an opportunity to recharge, fill your well, and gather together in new and dynamic ways.
