Free Poems in Flux & More

by Jimmy on April 6, 2014

We will be performing THROUGHOUT APRIL thanks to Flux Projects and their McTell Street Project. Come see us every Thursday in April at the corner of 12th Street and Peachtree (among the food trucks… yum!). Here are the times

  • April 3, noon-1pm
  • April 10, 1:30pm-2:30pm
  • April 17, 12:30pm-1:30pm
  • April 24th, noon-1pm

Other artists will also be performing every Thursday in April.

That’s not all. On April 20, 2-6pm, we’ll be writing free poems at Atlanta Streets Alive. If you’ve never been before, you should definitely come check it out. They shut a big street down for pedestrians and bicyclists to take it over for several hours. They’ve done Peachtree, Highland, and Edgewood before. This time they’ll shut down some streets on the West Side. Go to their webpage for all the details. We’re not sure where we’ll camp out yet, but walk around and you’ll probably find us.

UPDATE/CORRECTION (4/8):

Atlanta Streets Alive will actually be in the West END, not the West Side. We now have more details. Free Poems on Demand will be setting up on Ralph David Abernathy Blvd, between Peeple St and Lawton St.

UPDATE #2 (4/16):

We will also be writing free poems at the Living Walls + Boulevard Tunnel Initiative Project on Saturday, April 19 from noon to 4pm at 180 Carroll Street in Cabbagetown. There will be other festivities including a farmers market and tour of walls.

Hi Simon! Thanks for stopping by. I enjoyed your poems in ldp #8 also. Unfortunately I don’t know of any other publishers in this grain. I’ve not been in the “publishing” game for a while now (other than ldp). Best of luck to you!
