Poetry Programs for Students and Educators

Sunken Garden Poetry has grown over the years to include programs that encourage students and teachers to share the art of poetry.

Fresh Voices Poetry Competition
The Fresh Voices Poetry Competition invites high-school age poets to submit their work for this competition. The winners read at the Sunken Garden Poetry Festival, and their work is featured on our website.

Hill-Stead Student Poetry Outreach
This program, offered to Hartford High Schools, introduces students to poetry through a series of workshops and visits to the museum.
