Poem Depot is a pop-up store that sells original poems. For a pre-arranged fee, members of the Miami Poetry Collective write poems on manual typewriters based on topics, themes, or forms suggested by the consumers.
Poem Depot has become a regular feature of Wynwood's Second Saturday Art Walk and has also created events in partnership with the Miami Art Museum, Miami-Dade and Hollywood Public Libraries, Books & Books, and the Margulies Collection.
WLRN's Under the Sun reported on the Poem Depot and put together this excellent video:
