Past Festivals

Split This Rock has been putting on biennial festivals in the nation's capital since 2008. Every two years poets, activists, and dreamers gather in our nation’s capital for four days of readings, workshops, discussions, youth voices & activism.

The next festival will be held April 14-17, 2016 featuring Jan Beatty, Reginald Dwayne Betts, Dominique Christina, Nikky Finney, Ross Gay, Juan Felipe Herrera, Linda Hogan, and more! Our Call for Session Proposals is now open. Deadline is June 30. Visit our blog for more information!
