Carrboro’s Premier Poetry Event

The 2017 West End Poetry Festival will take place October 18 through 21—Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday evenings and Saturday afternoon and evening. All events are free and open to the public, so make plans to join us.

This year’s West End Poetry Festival is our biggest poetry celebration yet; with over 20 poets, 4 days of readings, workshops, and panels, and a focus on the theme “resistance.”

The festival will bring together poets of different styles, ages, races and ethnicities, and stages of development to share poems and their love of poetry.
