Join us to participate in the largest poetry reading in history! Saturday, September 26th, The Palm Beach Poetry Festival will be hosting our fifth annual open-mic in partnership with 100 Thousand Poets for Change. Visit our link with the central event site.
This is a global happening taking place at the same time in over 800 venues in 115 countries! Poets will read and perform work 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. Please limit your poem to one page, bring up to two poems, we will alternate readers with musicians as time allows.
Between poetry readings, special guest musicians will play songs for peace. If you’d like to bring your instrument and play along, or sing, you are welcome. There will be a Sign-up sheet when you arrive. The event will be photographed and archived by Stanford University.
Bottega Wine Bar has a small stage in the back of the venue where we will take to the mic to read. The Bottega’s Happy Hour gastro-pub menu will be available.
*Must be over 21 years old to attend.
