Calling all poets. Bring one short poem to participate in San Francisco’s biggest and all-ages open mic celebration of National Poetry Month at the 16th Annual Poems Under the Dome.
City Hall is still closed, so our annual celebration is going digital again. Since 2006 Poems Under the Dome has celebrated National Poetry Month inside City Hall with the support of The Mayor, The Board of Supervisors, SFPL, Friends of SFPL and community sponsors. Our citywide open mic continues online.
Bring one short poem to share, and see you there! We start with a Community Blessing by Jorge Molina, and San Francisco’s Poet Laureate Tongo Eisen-Martin reads the First Poem.
Organizers Diamond Dave Whitaker, E.K. Keith, Global Val Ibarra, Dan Brady, Richard Ivanhoe and Charlie Getter can’t wait to hear your poems! Poets and fans of poetry of all ages are welcome.
