Miami's Favorite Poems Project

In his role as Poet Laureate and led by his passion to connect community through poetry, Richard Blanco has created Miami's Favorite Poems Project. This project invites people from all walks of life to share a favorite poem that has had some meaningful impact on their life and thinking.

The project was launched at the Miami Book Fair on Nov. 19, 2022. Featured special guest readers included Mayor Daniella Levine Cava, Miami Dade College President Madeline Pumariega, former U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky, poet and novelist Sandra Cisneros, and poet Marci Calabretta Cancio-Bello, among others in our community.

If you have a favorite poem to share, fill out the form below and you'll be part of the archive of Miamian's favorite poems. You may also be selected and invited to share your poem in person at future poetry community events to be held at various locations throughout the County in the coming months. Read the Guidelines for Sharing Poems at Community Readings.
