POETRY OUTREACH CENTER
46th Annual Poetry Festival at City College
Initiated in 1972 and known as New York City’s “Woodstock of the Spoken Word,” the Spring Poetry Festival brings to the stage New York City public school students, college students, CCNY faculty and alumni, and guest artists of every poetic stripe, all reading their own work.
The Festival is held each year in Theater B of Aaron Davis Hall, 135th St. and Convent Avenue in Manhattan, from 9-5. The public is invited to attend. Early in the afternoon, the winners of the all-city-public-high school poetry contest read their winning poems.
