Every April 1st, O Miami’s largest annual event, O, Miami Poetry Festival, begins its month long campaign to expose every resident of Miami-Dade County to at least one poem.

The festival’s program also features readings, lectures and performances that have featured cultural luminaries like Anne Carson, Patti Smith, Thurston Moore, Raul Zurita, and many more.
