O, Miami Poetry Festival
The goal of our annual festival is for every single person in Miami-Dade County to encounter a poem during the month of April. Mixing innovative events with poetry-in-public-places projects, O, Miami turns Miami-Dade into a canvas for literary expression and subverts commonly-held notions of what is a poem and who is a poet.
