The 2023 Utah Poetry Festival will feature readings from Utah poets, and craft panels on poetry and poetics.

Poetry can move us, thrill us, create beauty and aesthetic enjoyment - but can it also change the world? In this panel, we will explore the ways poetry might be used as a basis for activism and civic engagement. Our panelists will discuss how poets might use the art to help speak back to our contemporary moment and make arguments about the world we live in. Panelists Brock Jones, Joel Long, Ashley Finley, and Matty Layne Glasgow, moderated by Kara van de Graaf.
