Tweet Us A Poem: Your Co-Authored Poem With Richard Blanco

Credit Elaine Chen

From our prior literary projects, we know South Florida has a lot of aspiring bards. So in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Miami Book Fair International, we asked you to help us tweet-compose a poem. 

Richard Blanco -- a Miami-raised poet who wrote the presidential inaugural poem this year -- started us off with the first line: "Why the stars?  Well, just look up, look"

We left the rest up to you. Read the result below.

And check the rest of WLRN.org for ongoing coverage of the fair and its guests. Or you can come see us at the WLRN booth at the street fair this weekend.
