2020 Palm Beach Poetry Festival Kundiman Fellowship

The Palm Beach Poetry Festival is a nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering the writing, reading, performance, and appreciation of poetry – by presenting an annual festival and other poetry events in Palm Beach County – featuring America’s finest poets.

The Palm Beach Poetry Festival has flourished for 11 years, presenting workshops with America’s most laurelled and engaging poets. Participants and auditors have hailed from over 24 States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Israel, Qatar, and Peru. They also host a special guest poet for readings and interviews. Some of their events combine poetry with other arts, including jazz (featuring Special Guest, former United States Poet Laureate, Robert Pinsky), dance, photography, painting and sculpture.

The Palm Beach Poetry Festival continues this extraordinary legacy as one of the leading literary events in America.

In honour of Kundiman, which is dedicated to the creation and cultivation of Asian American literature, offering a comprehensive spectrum of arts programming that gives writers opportunities to inscribe their own stories, transforming and enriching the American literary landscape, you can have the opportunity to be Fellow at the Palm Beach Poetry Festival.

The fellow will be an outstanding poet who will benefit from and contribute to participation in the workshop.

The 2020 Workshop Faculty includes Laure-Anne Bosselaar, Nickole Brown / Jessica Jacobs, Reginald Gibbons, Major Jackson, Ilya Kaminsky, Dana Levin, Adrian Matejka, and Maggie Smith. Their Special Guest Poet will be Joy Harjo, and Patricia Smith will be the festival Poet-at-Large.

A Fellowship Recipient will be selected by November 26, 2019, and notification will be made by email.
