Support the Parkmont Poetry Festival

The annual Parkmont Poetry Festival benefits hundreds of students from public, private, and charter Washington D.C. schools. The Festival is operated by Parkmont School and reflects Parkmont’s educational approach, which seeks to expand education beyond our school walls. We thank you for coming to our site to immerse yourself in poetry. Costs for operating the Festival each year are substantial, and we welcome your direct contributions to the Parkmont Poetry Festival. Your gift will support the creativity and self-expression of hundreds of DC student poets.
