THE TAOS POETRY FESTIVAL proudly welcomes Taos-based poet Phyllis Hotch, Asheville-based poet Allan Wolf, Brooklyn-based poet & Rumi translator Haleh Liza, and selected youth poets from Northern New Mexico to the stage at the Taos Community Auditorium on Saturday, June 17. All other poetry events will be held at the SOMOS SALON SPACE in downtown Taos throughout the week of June 11-17.
THE TAOS POETRY FESTIVAL has two goals: 1) To offer the Taos community an opportunity to interact with some of the nation’s best poets; 2) To create an event which provides the community and our youth poets a platform for meaningful conversations, hands-on learning, cultural bridge building, academic exploration, and healthy collaborations. These opportunities include readings, workshops, poetry shows, and many chances to engage with our guest poets during the festival. Youth poets 19 and under are admitted free to all events.
