The Ancient City Poets chapter of the Florida State Poets Association (FSPA) will host a community pen mic on the subject of "Pride" at the historic Waterworks Building located at 184 San Marco Ave, St Augustine, FL 32084 on the last Sunday of June.
The pride celebration, hosted by Start Now, St. Johns Cultural Council, and Narrow Magazine will begin at 12 noon and the Ancient City Poets open mic will begin at 3:00 p.m. Author and fine artist Jamie Lynn Stanish will lead and call up the first fifteen names on the list to share. Please limit your presentation to 5 minutes.
Come celebrate Pride Month with us! We'll have live music by Folk is People, sweet treats from local favorites, poetry and much more fun activities for the whole family at the Waterworks Building from 12pm-5pm, June 26th! A portion of proceeds will go back to House of Prism, St. Augustine's LGBTQIA+ resource center!
for more information!
Let your poetic words flow through the historic Waterworks building and through the streets of our arts community.
Ancient City Poets invite you to share on the subject of Pride. Share your polished poems or bust out some fresh ink from your notebook during St. Augustine, Florida’s longest-running open mic poetry event. Invite a friend or two or three. Ancient City Poets plan to create a safe place for sharing on the subject of pride.
If you would like to share a poem, please get your name on the list on the day of the event. There is space on the list for 15 poets at 5 minutes each. At 3:00 PM, the readers will be called to the podium in the order their names appear on the sign-up sheet.
