The community is invited to celebrate National Poetry Month (April) and Poem In Your Pocket Day (April 30) April 26 from 3 to 5 p.m. at City Coffee Company, 1280 N Ponce De Leon Blvd (near the Village Inn).
The idea of Poem In Your Pocket Day is simple: select a poem you love, carry it with you and share it with co-workers, family, and friends.Â Each year on this day, poems from pockets throughout the United States will be unfolded at events in parks, libraries, schools, workplaces, and bookstores.Â All are encouraged to step up to the poetry podium and share the poems that they are preparing for Poem In Your Pocket Day.
The Ancient City Poets have been gathering monthly in the Nationâ€™s Oldest City since August of 2009. The open mic readings are held â€œrenga styleâ€ with no emcee or sign-up sheet and end when all presenters have had an opportunity to share. Poems will be considered for publication in issue #2 of A.C. PAPA, a literary journal that spotlights Florida poets, authors, photographers and artists. For more information find the group on Facebook, or www.bodor.org or call Chris at 904-501.0043.
