The 2021 Virtual Parkmont Poetry Festival

Our 39th annual festival was held on Saturday, May 1 as a Zoom webinar. Please enjoy this recording of the event. These wonderful young poets make the screen feel as intimate as the live room, and their poetry is vibrant and thrilling! The latest 2021 Winners will be added to the site in the coming weeks. In the meantime, winning poems can be read by downloading the 2021 booklet here.
