O, MIAMI 2014 will return this April for a new round of events and projects. The goal: have all 2.6 million+ residents of Miami-Dade County encounter poetry in some way during National Poetry Month.
Thanks to an endowment from the Knight Foundation, O, Miami 2011 and 2013 were action-packed and successful. And now O, Miami will be held annually.
The festival will take place in various locations throughout Miami-Dade–with some events at set venues and other projects located or moving throughout the city–and will include both established and emerging authors, choreographers, visual artists, musicians, and, of course, poets reading and writing poems in many languages (English, Spanish, Creole, etc). Past participants include poets Anne Carson, Kevin Young, US Inaugural Poet Richard Blanco, musicians Thurston Moore and Will Oldman, and many others.
