Jax Poetry Fest is a FREE annual event produced by the North Florida nonprofit, Hope at Hand.
Every April, in celebration of National Poetry Month, JPF works to inspire community-based poetry projects and spark a love for language in North Florida. Designed to engage the community, the poetry programming of Hope at Hand is a unique arts and culture experience for Duval County. Spoken word performances, poetry slams, youth poetry contests, and workshops are offered at no cost to the public. Funding from the Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville, City of Jacksonville and the Florida Division of Cultural Affairs allow North Florida to get involved with poetry. Let this experience ignite your poetry passion as we celebrate the power of language!
