The mission of the New Orleans Poetry Festival and Small Press Fair is to create a space for an inclusive and diverse group of writers to collaborate, share and influence each other while also being immersed in the distinct literary culture of New Orleans. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s festival has been canceled. In lieu of the April 16-19 gathering, the organizers have mounted the Virtual NOPF 2020.
