PoetryFilm was invited to the “O, Miami” Poetry Festival in April to present a curated PoetryFilm programme.
Malgorzata Kitowski also gave a reading of the poems “Knitting”, “Graffitti” and “Theremin” from her book “Doppelgangers”.
O, Miami expands and advances literary culture in Greater Miami, FL. The mission of the festival is for every single person in Miami-Dade County to encounter a poem during the month of April.
Many thanks to the team at O, Miami for the invitation.
