Free Verse, the city's first poetry festival, will return for its fourth year this month. The event will held virtually from October 11th to 17th via Instagram, Youtube, and Facebook. This year's featured poet is Aja Monet.
Free Verse's mission is to "uplift the community by providing eclectic poetry events and workshops at multiple venues in Downtown and West Ashley. (They'll) collaborate with the Charleston County School District to put poets in schools and promote the power of the written word. (They'll) also treat poetry as public art, putting poems on sidewalks, napkins, t-shirts, billboards, buses and more."
