Join us to participate in the largest poetry reading in history! Saturday, September 24th, The Palm Beach Poetry Festival will be hosting our fifth annual open-mic in partnership with 100 Thousand Poets for Change.
This is a global happening taking place at the same time in over 800 venues in 115 countries! Poets will read and perform work simultaneously across the planet to promote social, political, environmental sustainability, and change, simultaneously across the planet. You are welcome to read your own work or your favorite poems by other poets. Between poetry readings, special guest musicians will play songs for peace.
Attendees are welcome to bring their own instruments to play or sing along during the closing jam. As in previous years, the event will be photographed by Blaise Allen and archived by Stanford University. Please invite your friends. There will be a Sign-up sheet when you arrive.
The American Rock Bar and Grill on the Intercoastal has a large private room that seats 200, great food and drinks offered on their Happy Hour menu during our entire event. The venue is handicapped accessible and the sound system is fabulous. Please bring a wrap or jacket for your comfort.
*Must be over 21 years old to attend.
