Miami’s bi-annual poetry festival O, MIAMI is back for 2013! Throughout the month of April, there will be poetry-centric events, parades, classes, contests and unexpected encounters, like poems on bar coasters and the air fresheners in Car2Go vehicles.
What’s best is that YOU can get involved. Click here for a full list of projects that you can participate in, including a Tumblr/Twitter/Instagram contest called “That’s So Miami” (all contributors get the coveted O, Miami tote bags, this year’s one is awesome). The full list of scheduled events can be found here.
Definitely mark your calendars for Sunday, April 28th at the New World Center as Sweat Records is co-presenting the O finale featuring 2013 Inaugural poet Ricahrd Blanco, THURSTON MOORE from Sonic Youth, and the hilarious Megan Amram (writer, Parks & Rec on NBC). After-party at The Broken Shaker too! We’ll keep you posted with ticket info, etc. as it comes out.
