Calling poets, people and places with ideas for National Poetry Month

Nevada County Arts Council will present its 3rd Annual Sierra Poetry Festival on April 27, 2019 at Sierra College in Grass Valley, attended by some of our most exciting local, national and international poets and performers.

From late March Nevada County Arts Council will host pop-up poetry events leading up to our mainstage 2019 Sierra Poetry Festival on April 27.

For the most part, these events are free and open to the public. They can take place in diverse locations - in cafes, churches, woods and meadows, schools, galleries (anywhere that’s accessible) - and encompass diverse approaches to poetry.

If you have an idea and a team, and we think it will fly, then we want to hear from you. We’ll help you promote it and you’ll become part of a fast growing poetry family in Nevada County.

Information on our 2019 Sierra Poetry Festival can be found here -
