Hey guys! I already posted this week but one more thing! There’s this really cool project going on and I thought I’d share it with you. It’s called “The Lost Poem” and it’s been put together by Saint Flashlight, a duo composed of Molly Gross and Drew Pisarra, and the O, Miami Poetry Festival. Basically, they’ve hung up “Lost Poem” flyers all around Miami that have a phone number on them — 1-(786) 373-6311 — that, when called, leads to an automated message that reads you poems. The goal of the project is “for every single person in Miami to encounter a poem during the month of April.” I obviously didn’t find out about this by stumbling upon a poster in Miami, though. I stumbled upon this project, instead, because I follow Saint Flashlight’s Instagram (which I’ll link below) and they’ve been posting about it. So yeah, either way — check out these poems! Such an interesting project, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Lost Poem flyers found @ninajohnsongallery for tonight’s beautiful @omiamifestival event "Our Own Voices" during which Hannah Rose Nicholas (Philadelphia) and Annaliese Kowert (Miami) lead a concert of music and poetry inspired by the visceral and folk-minded String Quartet no.4 by Hungarian composer Bela Bartok, and Strum by violinist and composer Jessie Montgomery. The concert was set in the Nina Johnson Gallery amid works by Derek Fordjour. [Molly is in Miami through Saturday to see and hear all things Poetry!]
