- March 16 — Authorities in Saudi Arabia arrest and jail poet Abdul Mohsen Musalam and dismiss a newspaper editor following the publication of Musalam's poem The Corrupt on Earth that criticizes the state's Islamic judiciary. In it, the poet accuses some judges of being corrupt and issuing unfair rulings for their own personal benefit.
- August 22 — Poet Ron Silliman starts his popular and controversial weblog, Silliman's Blog, which will become one of the most popular blogs devoted largely to contemporary poetry and poetics. (By August 2006, the blog will reach a total of 800,000 hits and get its next 100,000 by early November.).
- August 27 in the United States; December 8 in Europe — Avril Lavigne's pop song Sk8er Boi is released; it is about the award-winning Irish performance poet Gerard McKeown, whom she has not met, but had seen performing in Belfast, Northern Ireland while on tour there. The single reached number ten on the United States Billboard Hot 100, number eight in the United Kingdom, number three in Australia, number thirteen in Canada and number one in Spain. Lavigne confirms the connection in a 2008 interview.
- September - Amiri Baraka (b. 1934), an African-American poet and political activist from Newark, New Jersey who was appointed the second Poet Laureate of New Jersey, ignites a controversy and accusations of anti-Semitism with a public reading of "Somebody Blew Up America" at the Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival near Stanhope, New Jersey. Baraka's poem discussed the September 11th attacks that was highly critical of racism in America, included angry depictions of public figures such as Rudolph Giuliani, Trent Lott, Clarence Thomas, Condoleezza Rice, Colin Powell and Ward Connerly, accused Israel of involvement in the World Trade Center attacks, and supported the theory that the United States government knew about the 9/11 attacks in advance. Amid public outrage and pressure from state leaders, Baraka was asked to resign as the Poet Laureate by New Jersey Governor Jim McGreevey who appointed him to the post two months earlier. Baraka refused. Because there was no legal mechanism provided in the law to remove him as poet laureate, the state legislature and governor abolished the position to remove him from the post effective 2 July 2003.
