How You Can Help The Albany Word Fest


To make the 2015 Albany Word Fest event a success, and as free as possible for all attendees, we need financial assistance from the community. Your donation not only helps us put the Word Fest together, but also upcoming projects and events such as Up The River, the Albany Poets website costs, sending Team Nitty Gritty to the National Poetry Slam in Oakland this summer, and keeping poetry and spoken word happening and growing in the area year round.

If you would like to make your donation with your credit card, please click on the DONATE link that will take you to our secure PayPal checkout. If you would rather donate by check you can make your check payable to “Albany Poets” and mail it to 84 South Pine Ave., Albany, NY, 12208.

As a way to say thank you, we have set different levels of rewards for your donation that you can choose from. When we receive your donation (either by PayPal, check, or cash), you will get an email from Albany Poets where you can then choose your thank your gift. For more details, go to the Word Fest support page.

We are also looking for volunteers to help with getting information out on the event (flyering, social media posting) and setting up venues for the individual events. If you are interested, please send us an email at and let us know.

  1. I have written some original poetry pieces and i am a native new yorker. If you need an additional reader who has written the piece. Let me know. Stay Blessed

    1. Thanks for checking in. If you would like to take part in the Word Fest Open Mic tonight at the UAG Gallery (247 Lark Street, Albany), please come by. We will be starting at 7:00pm and going until at least 10. Poets have already signed up, but there will be opportunities to “fill in” throughout the evening.
