Free Verse, Charleston’s Poetry Festival, Returns This Fall

Published

on

Free Verse, the city’s first poetry festival, will return for its second year in October. The full schedule will be announced in August.

To celebrate the return of the event, festival creator and Charleston’s poet laureate, Marcus Amaker, and some friends took a poem into the streets. You can see the video below and read the poem here.

Free Verse’s mission is to “uplift the community by providing eclectic poetry events and workshops at multiple venues in Downtown and West Ashley. (They’ll) collaborate with the Charleston County School District to put poets in schools and promote the power of the written word. (They’ll) also treat poetry as public art, putting poems on sidewalks, napkins, t-shirts, billboards, buses and more.”
