Every April, with principal funding provided by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, O, Miami attempts to deliver a poem to every single person in Miami-Dade County. We call it the O, Miami Poetry Festival.

In April 2014, O, Miami produced 44 events and 25 projects designed to reach new audiences in Miami-Dade County. For videos, visit our Vimeo page. For photos, like us on Facebook.

The next festival will take place in 2015.

Past O, Miami participants include Anne Carson, W.S. Merwin, Raúl Zurita, Robert Hass, Thurston Moore, Richard Blanco, Tracy K. Smith, Megan Amram, Kool Moe Doe, and Reina María Rodriguez. For more of the poets we've hosted, see Poets.

The slideshow below displays some of our favorite moments from previous festivals. Knight Foundation created an amazing assessment of the inaugural festival. An archive page, created by artist David Reinfurt, is located here.
