Ode to Your Zip Code Finale Reading

  • The Kampong 4013 Douglas Road Miami, FL, 33133 United States (map)

Join O, Miami, WLRN, The Kampong, and edible South Florida as we celebrate the winning entries in the 2016 “Ode to Your Zip Code” poetry contest.

"Ode to Your Zip Code" is a poetry contest that turns the least lyrical designation of your home, your zip code, into an occasion for verse. The contest is co-presented with WLRN and runs from the end of March through April 21.

This year, we'll select 30 winners who will have an opportunity to read their poems at The Kampong during our finale.

Reserve your spot at the event here ($5 ticket) and submit your zip odes here.

WE STRONGLY ENCOURAGE taking a ride share, carpooling, or using public transit, as parking at The Kampong is severely limited and costs an additional $5.


We're thrilled to have partnered with Uber to provide new Uber users a free ride (up to $20) with the promo code OMIAMI2016.

How does it work? Using Uber's free iPhone/Android/Windows app, you can request a pickup and a car driven by a personal driver will show up in minutes. Your credit card is billed directly for your trip and there's no need to tip, so you won't need to carry cash. You can even see the car coming towards you on a map!

Follow these simple steps to get $20 off your ride:

1) Download the free Uber iPhone/Android/Blackberry 7 app (or sign up at Enter your information in the Uber app and promo code "OMIAMI2016" when you sign up.

3) Request a ride 5 - 15 minutes before you need one. $20 will be applied towards your first ride on uberX, uberXL, LUX or LUXSUV (not valid on uberTAXI, expires 6/18/2016).
