Pikes Peak Poetry Summit

The 2023 Pikes Peak Poetry Summit theme is “Art is a Bridge to New Perspectives.” This year we are celebrating poetry across Colorado with features from all over the state.

Join our summit and open up yourself to new ideas through powerful artistry. April is National Poetry Month and this summit will be the perfect way to celebrate whether you are a seasoned poet, exploring the art form, or just a lover of poetry. Get inspired, improve your craft, share your words, and learn more about poetry locally and across the state. Engage with our poetry workshops, share your work on the open mic, and experience amazing poetry and music performances.
