Poetry on the Piazza

July 30, 2012

By David Nguyen

As part of Portland Parks & Recreation's Summer Free For All events, downtown's Director Park is featuring Poetry on the Piazza every Monday starting at 6:30 pm.

This week poetry features Escritorio Publico/Plaza of Public Writing.  Based on the model of Plaza de Santo Domingo in Mexico City, the public will be invited to join the "plaza of public writing," and work with the plaza’s scribes to turn a plea, pledge, rant, declaration, seduction or curse into a letter, lyric, poem, song, prose or other creative work.

Check out our 2012 Summer Free For All schedule for a full list free and fun summer activities in your neighborhood.
