Dr. Wayne Clough Discussing Thomas Lux at Lux’s Tribute Event, April 2017
Poetry@Tech is one of the most well-known poetry organizations in the country. Founded in 2001 under the leadership of acclaimed poet Thomas Lux, 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 communities across Georgia.
Each year, Poetry@Tech organizes programs to promote poetry and poetics. Our acclaimed poetry reading series has introduced audiences to hundreds of 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.
Check out our upcoming events and videos of all our past poetry readings. We also offer courses in poetry and creative writing at Georgia Tech. Follow us on social media via Twitter (@poet_tech) and Instagram (@poetryattech)
All our events are free to attend and, unless specified, open to the public.
