This year’s festival workshops are now entirely SOLD OUT! You may still register to compete in the 2019 Wrightwood Poetry Slam, though, or come to any of the free events Saturday night and Sunday morning.

Slam Entry – $10

Admission to the event is free, but if you would like to compete in the 2019 Wrightwood Poetry Slam, you may sign up online ahead of time using the button below. There will also be same-day sign-ups available while there is room, though it’s looking like all of the performance slots might sell out ahead of time. 1st place: $400. 2nd place: $200. 3rd place: $100. 4th place: $50. There will be three rounds, so bring at least three poems.


Workshop registration (now sold out) includes the Saturday (Sept. 28th) reception, afternoon presentation, lunch, an eco-friendly (aluminum) water bottle, a complimentary copy of Rattle, and participation in two workshops of your choice—be sure to select the workshops that you want to attend for the morning and afternoon sessions. Every year some of the workshops sell out, and one already has, so register soon before more of them do!

Participants staying Sunday may also receive a 10-minute one-on-one editorial session with Timothy Green (sign up at the camp Saturday).

For more on Camp Mariastella, including directions, go here.

All participants will receive a PDF information packet by email approximately one week before the event, with directions, parking instructions, and other relevant information.

Lunch is provided by Wrightwood’s newest eatery, Bigfoot Bowls, including a snack bar and all-you-can-drink water, iced tea, or coffee.
