O, Miami Poetry Festival

With principal funding provided by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, the goal of the annual O, Miami Poetry Festival is for every single person in Miami-Dade County to encounter a poem.

Each festival begins on April 1 and ends on April 30. Mixing site-specific events, community gatherings, and poetry-in-public-places projects, the festival strives to be a celebration of Miami and its people.

The programming of the festival is built largely through an open submission process.
