Are you a lover of spoken word? Then please, join us for our monthly night of Poetry and Prose at the Port (au Prince).
Our resident poet, and host is Indran Amirthanayagam, a renowned published and awarded poet whose work spans the last two decades. Indran’s latest project, “Rankont Dout,” effortlessly combines original spoken word with emerging Haitian musicians.
Indran will share a melange of his personal and favorite poems, feature local and visiting poets, and pass the mic to community members who wish to share their love of, or gift in, poetry or prose.
Our Featured Poet on October 22 will be Ethelbert E. Miller. Miller is a writer and literary activist. He is the author of several collections of poetry and two memoirs. For fourteen years Miller has been the editor of Poet Lore, the oldest poetry magazine published in the United States. In April 2015, Miller was inducted into the Washington, DC Hall of Fame. In 2016, he received the AWP George Garrett Award for Outstanding Community Service in Literature and the DC Mayor’s Arts Award for Distinguished Honor. Miller currently serves on the faculty at the University of Houston/Victoria and hosts the weekly morning radio show On the Margin which airs on WPFW-FM 89.3. The Collected Poems of E. Ethelbert Miller, published in 2016 by Willow Books, is a comprehensive collection that represents over 40 years of his career as a poet. Miller’s most recent book is If God Invented Baseball, published by City Point Press.
