Streaming on Youtube and Facebook Live:
“Ode to Your Zip Code” is a South Florida-wide poetry call created by WLRN and O, Miami, a Knight Foundation-funded poetry festival, that turns the least lyrical designation of one’s home, a zip code, into an occasion for poetry. Beginning March 24th, WLRN, and O, Miami will accept odes to South Florida zip codes in the form of the code itself: five lines, with each line containing the number of words designated by the zip numbers.
(For example, if you live in 33139, your poem would be 3 words, 3 words, 1 word, 3 words, 9 words.)
Every Friday in April, WLRN will announce the top ten poems of the week. All fifty poets are invited to read their Zip Odes online.
