The Emily Dickinson Museum’sAnnual Tell It Slant Poetry Festival is an event with international reach that celebrates Emily Dickinson’s poetic legacy and the contemporary creativity she and her work continue to inspire from the place she called home. The 2022 festival, which will run from September 19 to 22, is named for Dickinson’s poem “Tell all the truth but tell it slant,” underscoring the revolutionary power of poetry to shift our perspectives and reveal new truths. Festival organizers are committed to featuring established and emerging poets who represent the diversity of the contemporary poetry landscape and to fostering community by placing poetry in the public sphere. This year’s lineup features workshops, panels, and readings by a diverse and talented group of poets from around the world, including Pulitzer Prize winner Tyehimba Jess. The 2022 festival will be hybrid, with events happening online, as well as in person at the museum.
