Delray Beach Proclaims January 18-23 as 
Delray Beach Poetry Week 

In honor of 6th annual


Miles Coon, Director of the Palm Beach Poetry Festival (PBPF), accepted a proclamation last night from Delray Beach Mayor Nelson S. "Woodie" McDuffie declaring January 18-23 as Delray Beach Poetry Week.

Returning to Old School Square in Delray Beach for six days (January 18-23), Coon says that the upcoming Palm Beach Poetry Festival will:

+ Present 12 award-winning poets from all over the world, including Mary Cornish, Stephen Dobyns, Carolyn Forché, Andrea Gibson, Jay Hopler, Marie Howe, Ilya Kaminsky, Thomas Lux, Anis Mojgani, Sidney Wade, David Wojahn & Kevin Young.

+ Welcome a record number of participating poets, including 96 workshop attendees and 11 auditors, coming from 25 different states and three foreign countries.

+ Offer nine ticketed and two free poetry events, more than ever before.

+ Spotlight the winners of PBPF’s annual High School Poetry Contest, selected from 454 submissions from local students, the most ever received.

+ Give more scholarship grants to poets in financial need, with a higher combined value, than ever before in the festival’s history

“I’m very pleased about the positive economic impact that the 6th annual Palm Beach Poetry Festival will make in Delray Beach and throughout the country because 72 percent of our participating poets and attendees hail from outside of Florida,” said Coon.

“In addition to serving the writing community through our professional workshops, the annual Palm Beach Poetry Festival also offers numerous opportunities for the public to hear truly great poetry, written from and for our time, read by poets who engage and enthrall the audience,” added Coon. “They are a diverse group, ethnically, demographically and aesthetically.  When people hear them, they will hear America singing.”
