We did it LA!
With $2,000 donated, we will be able to have The Poetry Circus return to LA!
Save the date to hear these and other poetic voices:
If you can’t make it to L.A. I have an idea to fly you here! The Living Poetry Project is hosting a contest–The Haiku Balloon Contest! Three lucky poems will be professionally printed on balloons to help decorate the event with your words. Please submit poems to:

If you are a Poetry Circus lover, please consider contributing to the GoFundMe campaign. There is only 5 more days to contribute to the Circus–the circus fly across the country.
Blessings to all,
The Poetry Circus was inspired by the release of the collection, In the Circus of You published by Rose Metal Press . The Poetry Circus is part workshop, community outreach, performance, ride, dance, and creations. This community focused and driven event blurs the line between performer and audience to allow everyone the chance to run away and join the circus.
By presenting poetry in an alternative venue, the egalitarian characteristics of poetry are amplified. Poetry IS for everyone, regardless of where we come from or how we got there; we all process and understand the world through metaphor.
