History:

The Wordstock Poetry Festival began in 2010, with over 100 poets gathered around a campfire and a country porch, reading poetry.

In 2011, the Festival moved to Sibley Orchard and continued with Poetry and a Festival Setting with Turkey Legs and pitched tents.

In 2012 and 2013, it was held in Rotary Park in Blue Springs, Missouri. In addition to a Poetry Festival, it became a Book Festival and was host to many area authors and booksellers.
