This four-day celebration of the spoken word includes readings, workshops, open mic opportunities, and lots of time for poets and friends of poetry from around the region to get acquainted. The event is intended to help grow and sustain a community of poets, writers, and literature enthusiasts in the mountains and high deserts of Colorado and New Mexico, with a special emphasis on the Sangre de Cristo region.
A gathering of poets from Colorado and New Mexico
a poetry festival unlike any other
JOIN US AT THE END OF THE ROAD
Poem Fest is a unique opportunity for poets to gather and tap into the muses that be and to be with one another. Crestone is a contemplative and welcoming community, especially receptive to poets and other marginal and/or creative types. This is the end of the road. Where you can take a break from the rest of the world and burrow down into that quiet and comfy realm that might call forth a few new lines. Or at least a little inspiration.
