Poetry Out Loud 2020–2021

NEW THIS YEAR: The NEA has announced that the 2021 National Poetry Out Loud Finals will be held virtually as a video submission-based competition and strongly encourages contest organizers at all levels to hold virtual events in order to ensure the safety and well-being of students, parents, teachers, and everyone involved with POL. In accordance with that direction, Colorado’s 2021 Poetry Out Loud State Finals will also be a video submission-based competition and will be streamed online for free in early March.

Lighthouse Writers Workshop makes me hopeful about the future of the arts in America.
