From the Organizer

A year ago we were one of only a handful of festivals that transformed into a fully functioning event just weeks into lockdown during National Poetry Month. We imagined that we would be together in person this year, and we will be, but once again online for the safety of all. Sierra Poetry Festival is a live international festival marking National Poetry Month from the rolling foothills of California’s Gold Country to the rugged High Sierra, bringing a rich literary community together to celebrate the spoken word and reach out to brand new audiences in fresh ways. Through Sierra Poetry Festival we also celebrate California Arts, Culture & Creativity Month and we draw attention to our two coveted California Cultural Districts. This year, with our theme of “Re-membering,” we are presenting some of the most exciting poets, musicians, literary critics, and presenters from across the world for an interdisciplinary experience that engages audiences globally. Join us in celebration of our fifth annual festival!
