The Roxbury Poetry Festival is a biennial event centering poetry in Roxbury, MA.

About this event

The inaugural festival is happening virtually with the exception of two evening events. The festival features several award-winning writers, panelists, and curators, and centers a keynote address from 2020 Pulitzer Prize winning poet, Jericho Brown. The day-long event culminates with a Publisher’s Poetry Slam sponsored by Button Poetry that yields a book contract for a local writer and a “Beast The Beat” concert battle highlighting local hip hop artist. The festival is free and open to the public.
