Poetry@TECH is one of the most well-known poetry organizations in the country. Our mission is to bring high-profile and celebrated poets, as well as new and exciting voices, to Atlanta, and to share the art of poetry with Georgia Tech students and the communities across Georgia.
Each year, Poetry@TECH organizes programs to promote poetry and poetics. Our acclaimed poetry reading series introduces Atlanta and Georgia audiences to many legendary poets and critics, including Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award winners, MacArthur 'Genius' Grant recipients, and other beloved authors. We also host workshops, craft talks, conversations about poetry, Atlanta-wide poetry festivals, poet-in-school programs, and other activities.
All our events are free to attend and, unless specified, open to the public.
