O, Miami

O, Miami is a community-based festival with the annual goal of having every single person in Miami-Dade County encounter a poem during the month of April each year. The festival, principally funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, uses an open-curation model and mixes cross-genre events with poetry-in-public-places initiatives to use literature as an occasion for community-building. In addition to the festival, O, Miami provides teaching residencies to schools and prisons, publishes books, and hosts visiting artists. For photos and videos, visit omiami.org.
