Children's Festival

The NYC Children’s Poetry Festival, sponsored by Writopia, aims to remind kids that writing (like dance, art, and music) is a valuable way of expressing themselves and exploring their world! Ages 2-18 are invited into the beautiful nature of Governors Island for a weekend of inspiration, communication, and fun with their peers! Children are invited to share their own original poetry on our kids-only stage. For the younger crowd we’ll have book readings and the Poetree Forest (a land of balloons that children can write poems on and add illustrations to), as well as a handmade teepee village to spur little imaginations.
