Poetry and Poetry Lovers Will Gather Online Via Zoom
The Ancient City Poets will host an open mic reading open to all on Sunday, April 26th from 3:00 to 4:30 online via zoom. Poets of all skill levels are offered an opportunity to share their poems with a loving and supportive audience.
During this time of social distancing, the local poetry community has moved to an online platform to share their writing words. The March online gathering attracted readers from South Florida, Jacksonville, and St. Augustine.
The zoom meeting ID number will be posted on the Ancient City Poets FB Book page. The open mic will start at 3:00 pm. At that time, the host will ask who would like to have their name on the list. Readers will be called to the “podium” in the order their names appear on the list. The first 15 readers will be guaranteed a spot at the mic.
All are encouraged to share their own poems or the poems of their favorite writers as we celebrate National Poetry Month and Poem in Your Pocket Day (Thursday, April 30th).
