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 August 27 will be Grace Cavalieri! Cavalieri is celebrating 41 years on public radio, with “The Poet and the Poem” from The Library of Congress.
