One of the winners of our 2014 Festival went on to win the Anacostia Watershed Prize and was featured on TED Talks, where she recited that winning poem. Enjoy listening to the talents of one of our brilliant Washington youth.
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!
