Before It Sinks into the Sea

April 15, 2018

Rock Plaza, University of Miami, Coral Gables

The University of Miami English Department, O, Miami Poetry Festival, and Sinking City Magazine invite you to attend “Before It Sinks Into The Sea: Micro-Eulogies For Miami,” an interactive flash fiction experiment and climate change awareness event.

Part poetry reading, part micro-memoir generator, and part eulogy for the city that we love, this event challenges participants to create a collective memory of Miami’s halcyon days by writing 100 word "goodbyes" to the places and experiences of the city that they love most.

Participants are encouraged to share their micro-memoires with those attending, as well as to make audio and video recordings of their eulogies. Whether you want to compose and read your own micro-eulogy, share a short text by a Miami writer about the city, or just come by and listen for a while, everyone is welcome.

The event takes place on Thursday, April 19, at Rock Plaza on the Coral Gables campus of the University of Miami, from 2pm to 4pm.
