Inprint is excited to be part of Contemporary Arts Museum Houston’s Virtual Summer Family Day on Saturday, July 25. Join Inprint Poetry Busker Josie Mitchell as she writes free poems on the spot on requested themes for attendees via CAMH’s IG Live @camhouston.
To be entered into the drawing to receive a free customized poem, email your name and requested poem theme (including a few adjectives or key points) to firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday, July 23, 5 pm. Then on Saturday at 1:30 PM five lucky individuals will be chosen at random to receive their very own poem written just for them. Josie will be back at 2:30 PM on IG Live and share aloud the written poems, along with a piece of her own writing. Join Josie and Inprint and celebrate the power of poetry!
