PoetryFest returns to Sanibel Island
April marks National Poetry Month, which was first established by the Academy of American Poets in 1996. Corresponding events this year include the return of PoetryFest on Sanibel after a two-year hiatus induced by the COVID-19 pandemic. The event, organized by the Sanibel Poets Society, will feature more than 20 Southwest Florida-based poets reciting their original works. The event is free to attend, but the poetry is priceless. Ahead of PoetryFest 2022, we’re joined by five of this year’s featured poets including Dorothy Howe Brooks, Dan England, Chris Godwin, Joe Pacheco and John Robilotta. They’ll recite some of their poems and share their insights on the art of writing poetry.

Wednesday, April 13 beginning at 2 p.m.
