POETRY WALK - DOWNTOWN JACKSONVILLE
Public Display of North Florida Poetry Hub Member's Poetry
Hope At Hand hosts JAX Poetry Fest each year in Jacksonville. This consists of all kinds of cool poetry events ranging from workshops, live poetry performances and in April of 2021, a Poetry Walk. North Florida Poetry Hub members wrote special poems for the occasion and Hope At Hand had sandwich boards created which were displayed at various venues on the sidewalks and parks in downtown Jacksonville. Awesome!
These sandwich board signs will also be used at future events by Hope At Hand and North Florida Poetry Hub. Haiku poems written by NFPH members were also included on the Haiku Wall downtown. Another awesome benefit of being a member of the North Florida Poetry Hub!
RISING MOON PRESS
We have an on-going working relationship with a small press publishing company who works one-on-one with our poets to publish their own books of poetry and help their dreams become a reality!
* This access to an editor and publisher expertise for advice and assistance is a part of our membership benefit.
