Last month Christen Matix, Summer Starr and I shined up our smiles, polished our pens to present our proposal to the downtown Community Food Co-Op. We asked the board’s permission to convert the derelict phone booth on Forest Street, located outside next to the community board, into a Poem Booth. The board loved the idea! Outreach Manager, Adrienne Renz, shares our proposal received “a loud and resounding YES!”
GREEN LIGHT! The Poem Booth team is now working, planning and preparing to launch the project by January 2017.
Please visit the project’s website to follow the KICKSTARTER, find out about the quarterly poetry contest, and for more photos and videos about the Poem Booth.
Our simple goal: To create something that enhances and promotes community.
