The Poetry Circus

What is The Poetry Circus: 

The Poetry Circus is part workshop, community outreach, performance, ride, dance, and creation. This community event blurs the line between performer and audience to allow everyone the chance to run away and join the circus. 

This Year's Poetry Circus: 

This August 26th (in celebration of the 97th anniversary
of the 19th Amendment) we will host 25 women poets, performers, as well as many literary organizations and literacy outreach programs. 

By presenting poetry in an alternative venue, the egalitarian characteristics of poetry are amplified. Poetry IS for everyone, regardless of where we come from or how we got there; we all process and understand the world through metaphor.
