US and Canadian Poetry Open Mikes

Palm Beach County Public Library Okeechobee Branch


ModPo South is inspired by FREE course on Coursera called Modern Poetry, taught by Al Filreis, poetry professor at University of Pennsylvania. We follow the tradition of a close read, as well as an “open mic” reading of original or favorite works by attendees.

Please bring 1-3 poems to read (3-5 minutes), and a short “hard” poem to be submitted for the close read period.

Close read poems are selected by consensus.

Join us, whether you are a poet, a student, of just curious. You do not have to know much about poetry, belong to the ModPo class, have a college education, or be part of the University of Pennsylvania. Come, join in, or simply observe.
