We have been gathering on the last Sunday of every month for free open mic poetry reading since August of 2009. This will be our 8th gathering on Zoom due to Covid-19.
This reading will be open to the 18 poets of PAM Jam 2020 and the organizers of this perfect pandemic project only. If you would like to watch the reading and cheer the poets on, please view the event stream that will be running on FB live. The entire event will be uploaded to YouTube is approximately one week later.
During this time of social distancing, the North Florida poetry community has moved to an online platform to share their written words. Last month we spotlighted Shutta Crum from Ann Arbor. The June reading featured a visit from Mid-West poet John Dorsey. July was an explosive reading with featured poet Dan Denton, from Toledo, Ohio. September was dedicated to our annual 100 Thousand Poets for Change, where 16 writers read their words that related to the subject of "change".
SUPPORT OUR READING VENUE
As soon as social distancing is a memory, we will return to the Corazon, located at 36 Granada St in Saint Augustine, Florida. The Corazon is open most evenings. We do ask that you patronize them and thank them for opening their doors to poetry and spoken word and performance art.

ANCIENT CITY POETS ON YOUTUBE
Two years ago, for National Poetry Month, we launched a YouTube Channel to preserve our past. We always encourage video students and volunteers with cameras to help us document the Saint Augustine poetry scene.
Subscribe to our channel so you can get notified whenever new footage is added. Here is the document of the 100 Thousand Poets for Change reading, recorded on September 27, 2020.
