Although I have written a couple of poems in my youth and read a little Shakespeare and Frost, I've never really been a huge lover of poetry. However, after reading Umlands collection I think that I have now been inspired to again revisit reading this genre. A Diary of A Poets Pen is a beautiful collection of thought and emotion provoking poems. The writing is meaningful, lyrical, intriguing, and beautifully written.
While I enjoyed many poems from this collection, 5 stars- Lyrical And Inspiring! Two very moving reads. In fact, I wish the slush pile was as entertaining as this evening and last night. It was a night where the finest lyrical designers put their best verse forward as the poetry-loving public, literary publishers, and members of the press gathered together for Poetry Press Week , held in the chic venue of Mana Contemporary in Wynwood.
Now that it has made its way across the country to Miami with the help of O, Miami, Mehl and Rigamonti hope to spread the concept, and iterations of the event, to other culturally receptive cities around the country as well. The showcase featured the creative talents of rising and established poets as they presented their newest, unpublished works in exciting and unexpected ways. Combining visual, auditory, and performance art—the poets were not allowed to read their own work—the artists created presentations that brought their poetry to a new level of perception, and appreciation.
A total of five poets presented their work that night, including Annik Adey-Babinsky, Carlos Pintado, Cherry Pickman, and Aja Monet—each putting their own lush, multisensory stamp on their work. Performer Victoria Hasselhof took center stage, silently removing flowers off her dress and hair, until she exposed the blood red of her dress.
In physics, extinction is the shattering of light. So maybe, if we turn away as the wavelengths of other species turn to flat lines, … our humanness, our apex predators will shine brighter. Calvocoressi, along with Saeed Jones, Executive Editor of Culture at Buzzfeed , were just some of the literary editors in attendance that evening. And I think O, Miami is the exact opposite of that. It reevaluates itself, being a festival that is really, deeply invested in the passionate lives of the people of this city.
And that I think is something that every festival in this country could pay attention to. After the performances concluded, attendees were invited to attend the after party, held down the block and across the street at Kit and Ace. Guests were treated to sweet and tender carved meats and specialty cocktails made of vodka with lemon juice spiced with ginger.
Clidiane Aubourg is a writer living in Miami, Fl. O, Miami is spreading the good news about local poetry through its Poetry Today project. Throughout the month of April on each weekday, West Kendall residents receive a mini edition of the poetry-themed newspaper, each focused on a different neighborhood in Miami. There will be 20 editions in all, distributed to about homes each day, featuring a total of lyrical greetings from neighborhoods as diverse as Coral Gables, Allapattah, Liberty City, and Wynwood.
Select editions of the paper will also be distributed during other O, Miami events this month. Photos by Gesi Schilling. With the help of coordinating artist Sandra March, O, Miami held a call for local poets to submit a poem about their neighborhood to be included in the project. We chose West Kendall because not many cultural events are held there; they often have to travel to places like downtown Miami, Miami Beach or whatever, to enjoy cultural events. So in a metaphorical way, O, Miami was able to go to West Kendall, and bring some culture as well. Each neighborhood edition, designed by Sandra, a native of the Catalonia region in Spain, has a 1,copy run, and features a special tropical design theme unique to that area, including its own particular plant.
The Coconut Grove edition, for example, features a cover proudly displaying its signature denizen, the peacock and is adorned throughout the issue with lovely representations of Spanish moss.
Inside, poet Sarah Trudgeon describes her perspective of the area:. Way high up for Miami, the usual distortion: There was never a grove. An insurance man draws a map. Like any countdown, the closer we get to the last number, the more palpable the tension.
Second reason, I was going to share my first published poem. Third reason, this was a party at Villain Theater, a hip new spot. I checked in at the ticket booth, bought a few books and then proceeded to the theater. The room, with black walls and low lighting, was a perfect venue for the event. It felt chic and intimate, spacious enough for about fifty bodies but cozy enough to mingle.
During mingling time, people flocked away from the seating area and towards the two tables at the entrance of the room. But more people were gravitating toward the Books Are Nice! This was a lively little scene and I briefly talked to J. Portela, editor of Jai-Alai Magazine during mingling time.
