Zip Odes 2018 with O, Miami @ Vizcaya Museum and Gardens | Miami | Florida | United States

WLRN, O, Miami, and Vizcaya Museum & Gardens present an evening to celebrate the completion of the Ode to Your Zip Code contest.

Join all the contest winners for a reading and reception on the water at one of South Florida’s most striking cultural gems.

“Ode to Your Zip Code” is a South Florida-wide poetry contest created by WLRN and O, Miami, a Knight Foundation-funded poetry festival, that turns the least lyrical designation of one’s home, a zip code, into an occasion for poetry.

Beginning in March 2018, WLRN and O, Miami will accept odes to South Florida zip codes in the form of the code itself: five lines, with each line containing the number of words designated by the zip numbers.

(For example, if you live in 33139, your poem would be 3 words, 3 words, 1 word, 3 words, 9 words.)
Every Friday in April, WLRN will announce the top ten poems of the week. All forty winners are invited to read their Zip Odes at Vizcaya.

Additionally, to round out the evening, students from the Poetry, Art Community partnership with Vizcaya and FIU’s Honors College will be on site to read original poetry and encourage participants to explore the grounds on an unofficial poetry tour! Fore more information about PAC, visit
