New Orleans Poetry Festival

We are again the official bookseller for the New Orleans Poetry Festival! The Fest began in 2016 as the brainchild of Megan Burns of Trembling Pillow Press and Bill Lavender of Lavender Ink/ Diálogos. The mission of the New Orleans Poetry Festival and Small Press Fair is to create a space for an inclusive and diverse group of writers to collaborate, share and influence each other while also being immersed in the distinct literary culture of New Orleans.

The Festival is highly participatory with events ranging from workshops where you will be generating writing to open mics where you can share your work to getting out on the dance floor to listen and dance to our poets with bands.

Festival tickets are $75. The Small Press Book Fair where we’ll be selling books is free and open to the public!
