Poets and poetry lovers are invited to celebrate mothers and others at St. Augustine’s longest-running open mic gathering.
Share two or three of your polished poems or bust out some fresh ink from your notebook. Invite a friend or two to view the livestream on Facebook Live to cheer you on.
Since Mother's Day happens this month, May is known as a month to celebrate mothers. There are other events such as Memorial Day, and that is fair game for poems, as well. May (be) you are one of the folks who associate this month with grilling and chilling. Write on! The writing prompt is just a suggestion, and you are free to follow it or not. What is important, is that we get to know you and your creative words.
If you would like to share a poem, please show up at 2:30 PM on the day of the reading and get your name on the list. Ancient City Poets have space on the list for 15 poets at 5 minutes each. At 3:00 PM the readers will be called to the podium in the order their names appear on the sign-up sheet.
Outdoor art patio at 137 King Street in the San Sabastian Art District, St. Augustine, Florida 32084. Pop-up coffee and sweet treats for sale by Ancient City Brunch Bar. Get to know their menu and their hours at their downtown location.
At 3:00 PM EST on Sunday, May 30th, the Facebook Live feed for this reading will appear on the following site:
