Poetry is a powerful vehicle for celebrating and sharing our personal narratives. This April we’re joining Minneapolis-based Milkweed Editions and other independent booksellers across the state to commemorate the fusion of art and history. We’re inviting poets of all ages and experience levels to share their favorites –published or original– during our first annual Poem in Your Pocket Day open-mic event.
