O, Miami Poetry Festival  The goal of O, Miami is for every single person in Miami to encounter a poem during the month of April. Next festival begins April 1, 2019.

For 2017’s Poetry Easy Tickets, created by Joe Eisenberg, we printed poems in English, Spanish and Creole on 100k transit tickets. 🚊

In honor of the 2019 RFP, we’re highlighting some of our favorite past projects like, Checkout Poems by Alana Burman.
