Poetry Everywhere, and They Mean Everywhere, in Miami Festival (via NY Times)

On April 1 the organizers of the O, Miami Poetry Festival begin their annual monthlong campaign to put a poem in front of all 2.6 million residents of Miami-Dade County. “Miamians should watch out for poems on buildings, on fences, in the mail, even in the bathroom,” Scott Cunningham, the festival director, said.

This year’s edition includes 30 events and 23 projects, some orthodox, others not. “Ode to the Code,” a joint project with WLRN, the local public radio station, asks area residents to write poems based on their ZIP codes: five lines, with the number of words per line matching the numbers in their codes.
