Once again the 11th Annual Jamaica Poetry Festival (JPF) 2021 is here with us, this year’s event will be Streamed Live from PBCJ TV Studios in Kingston, Jamaica on Sunday, August 8, 2021 at 2pm Jamaica time under the theme “The Virtual Global Diaspora Edition.”

Due to this year’s virtual nature of the event, some presenters will perform live and some will be live streamed via zoom. According to JPF event organizers “as a contingency measure, all presenters – especially those being live streamed, have been asked to do a pre-recorded version of their intended presentation, for the ‘just in case’ situation and to ensure smooth programming.
