It’s Poetry Month! Vizcaya is celebrating all month long as we prepare to welcome O, Miami Poetry Festival for a night of Miami-inspired readings on April 25, starting at 6:30 p.m.
Guests will be delighted by local bards and scribes as they enjoy Vizcaya’s iconic waterfront vistas, complimentary beer and snacks. “ZipOdes” returns as the theme for the evening, turning the least lyrical designation of one’s home, a zip code, into an occasion for poetry. To round out the evening, students from the Poetry, Art Community (PAC) partnership between Vizcaya and FIU’s Honors College will be on site to read original poetry and encourage participants to explore the grounds on an unofficial poetry tour!

For those interested in stepping up to the mic, you can submit your own ZipOdes creations online for a chance to be selected to participate. The deadline for submissions is April 20.
