Irving Texas Poetry Festival

One Weekend in April, some poets were invited to a festival held at a large middle school in Irving. It was called the Texas Poetry Festival, and it was sponsored by the Irving Public Library and the school district. There were all kinds of things going on out there that day, The Irving Poetry Society was invited to host an open reading, and 2 doors down, Clebo was hosting a teen slam. Below are some photos of this event.
