Is your daily prose limited to tackling your email inbox? We feel you. But we've also got the antidote to your literary woes: With a lofty goal of ensuring every single person in Miami-Dade County encounters a poem during the month of April, O, Miami, Miami's first and only poetry festival (now in its sixth year), organizes literary events with a twist. Expect readings mingled with music and visual art installations, with internationally celebrated poets like the nation's first Hispanic poet laureate, Juan Felipe Herrera. O, Miami projects range from a virtual-reality-guided meditation to a "poetry prescription" experiment doled out to patients at a local hospital. Way better than emails.


O, Miami is a monthlong poetry festival with events happening all over the city.
