2023 New York City Youth Poet Laureate Commencement

Join URBAN WORD NYC for an unforgettable evening of lyrical brilliance, celebrating the young voices that represent not just the future of poetry but tomorrow's greatest change-makers. Hosted by URBAN WORD NYC, in partnership with Federal Hall, the National Parks Service, and the National Harbor Conservatory, the NYC Youth Poet Laureate Program aims to identify young writers and leaders committed to creating change through civic engagement and literary excellence.

10 finalists, selected based on their artistic merit and community service experience, will take the stage to showcase their most daring and dynamic poems before one emerges as this year's NYC Youth Poet Laureate.

Tickets to this special event are limited, so be sure to secure your spot early to witness the next generation of poets as they ascend to new heights. Doors open at 6PM!
