Support the  Festival

The Tucson Poetry Festival's mission is to provide an accessible and diverse celebration of poetry. All festival events are free and open to all members of our community. We collaborate with local businesses and organizations for our events and we prioritize venues that are accessible to all. When you give to the Poetry Festival, your dollars go toward poet honorariums, travel expenses and lodging, as well as venue and material fees. In short, the festival is not possible without your donations and support.

Join the Board of Directors

The TPF board meets monthly with a few extra meetings leading up to the festival. Members contribute their time and skills to putting on festival events, as well as fundraisers and readings periodically throughout the year. We are actively seeking new members and we are especially interested in those with accounting, grant writing, and public relations experience, but all poetry enthusiasts are welcome. Contact us if you think you might be a fit or need more information.
