Celebrating National Poetry Month

Paper stuck to door that reads soapbox poetry

The Betsy South Beach (thebetsyhotel.com) has a full slate of events and interactive activities on tap for National Poetry Month 2015, in partnership with O, Miami, the Academy of American Poets, the Miami Dade County Public Schools, Greater Miami Jewish Federation, Miami Dade College, Florida International University, and other partners. The Betsy will welcome visiting poets, present public readings and salons, and debut BLT Steak’s 2015 Literary Cocktail called The Poet's Palliative. Also during April 2015, The Writer’s Room at The Betsy (betsywritersroom.com)celebrates its third anniversary.

Guests and locals alike are invited to join us for the many events planned - but especially to partake of our 4th Annual Soapbox Poetry.  Each weekday, two invited poets will gather on the veranda at The Betsy at 5pm to read two poems: one of their own and one written by someone they admire.  The readings are short, fun and often with unexpected performances.  Betsy’s Soapbox puts poetry front and center. Soapbox Poetry 2015 kicks off on Wednesday, April 1, 2015 – join us every weekday at 5pm for all of the fun!
