Dade Poets Society

Will you contribute a verse?

We believe Miami is most poetic city in the world.

Throughout the year, we teach poetry to kids in schools, host a month-long poetry festival, and publish Miamians in books and unexpected places like billboards, fences, and walls. Our work is an act of love for our city, inviting Miamians to share their stories and write a new one together.

Don’t just stanza there!

O, Miami invites you to become a member of the Dade Poets Society, a group dedicated to supporting and uplifting our work.

“Medicine, law, business engineering— these are noble pursuits, and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love—these are what we stay alive for.

- Professor Keating, Dead Poets Society (1989)
