Ozark Woods Poetry Festival
November 11 2017

Poetry can be defined as a literary work in which special intensity is given to the expression of feelings and ideas through the use of distinctive style and rhythm. poetry is a flowing conversation invoking your imagination and empathy. poetry bridges communication across nations and breaks down boundaries.


Poetry promotes literacy, builds community, and fosters emotional resilience. Poetry is necessary, daring us to live and to not fear the end. poetry is a magical art, teaching the magician by weaving words and wisdom into enchanting spells cast only by being spoken. poetry is what happens when the dark meets the light, like a full moon illuminating the sky on a stormy night. poetry is the beating of your heart. that's your rhythm and your soul.


For these reasons and more, we are excited to invite you to the first Ozark Poetry Festival hosted by The Escape Ranch. 


On November 11th we will open the grounds with workshops, entertainment, open mic and more.
