The Inprint Poetry Buskers spread the joy of poetry by writing poems on demand at festivals and special events throughout the Houston area. The group is made up of mostly graduate students and alumni from the nationally renowned University of Houston Creative Writing Program. These talented poets, using typewriters and their skill and wits, tap into the muse of immediate inspiration and write poems for people based on themes given to them on the spot. The poems are free of charge and people love taking their own poem home. Getting a poem written specifically for you is an invaluable experience, and for hundreds of Houstonians, the Inprint Poetry Busker are making poetry feel like a relevant and accessible experience.
Over the past year, the Inprint Poetry Buskers have written poetry for people of all ages at Theater District Open House, MenilFest, Sunday Streets and other events. Scroll below for details on where they will be next.
This Saturday, March 25, the Inprint Poetry Buskers will be at the Taiwanese Community Center of Houston for an interactive literature and art project conceived by Yu-Ru Huang and sponsored by the Taiwanese Heritage Society of Houston.
