Event description
A walkable "lit crawl"-style festival that will take place across five venues on historic Grand Avenue for National Poetry Month

About this Event

Thanks for your interest in the first annual Phoenix Poetry Walk (PPW), which will take place on Saturday April 11th from 4-9pm across six venues along Grand Avenue.

The purpose of the festival is not only to celebrate National Poetry Month, but to showcase the breadth and diversity of our city's poetic talent. This will be the first poetry festival hosted in Phoenix, and it's free and open to the public.

Readings will take place simultaneously across the six venues from 4-8pm, with a final reading by rinky dink press to cap off the evening from 8-9pm at Trans Am Cafe. The idea is for both attendees and participants to walk, wander, and take in a little of everything that poetry and Grand Ave. have to offer!

The partner-venues for the first annual PPW include

  • Trans Am Cafe
  • El Charro Hispter Bar
  • Gallery Five15
  • Grand Avenue Records
  • Bud's Glass Joint
  • Cha Cha's Tea

When you register, you'll be prompted to select an available venue and time from the pull-down menu. Once you've done so, your group is responsible for curating and hosting a 50 minute reading at your chosen venue/time featuring authors/editors/affiliates of your group, which can include 5-10 poets.

There will be an open-mic after party at Bikini Lounge from 9-11pm, which is open to all participants and non-participants!

Please direct questions to phxpoetryfest@gmail.com.

Hope you're as excited as we are for this! Let's put the Phoenix poetry scene on the map together!

Love,

rinky dink press (rdp)
