The Fulbright Program Presents: An Evening of Poetry
“Poetry is language at its most distilled and most powerful”
– Rita Dove, 1974 Fulbright U.S. Student to Germany, Pulitzer Prize winner, and U.S. Poet Laureate
In recognition of World Poetry Day, join the Fulbright Program in celebrating the power of words. Led by Fulbright-National Geographic Storyteller alumna and spoken word artist Alyea Pierce, we invite you to be a part of a virtual evening of poetry featuring readings of original works by accomplished poets and Fulbright alumni, including a special reading performed by Rita Dove.
Whether you are a seasoned poet or a novice, we encourage you to submit your poetry for a chance to be featured during the event.
