It has been an emotionally intense Ramadan 2016 and for the past month of Ramadan, a group of poets returned to write poetry together for Poetry-A-Day for Ramadan, creating one piece of poetry/prose/art each day in an effort to reflect and meditate on the holy month. There are no rules, except to create something daily.

Please join us for the culminating evening event where poets will share their favorites of what they created over the month of Ramadan.

Poetry-A-Day For Ramadan

Ramadan is a time of reflection and prayer and for some of us — poetry. This space is for poets to share their Ramadan poems or prose or paint or music daily for Ramadan.
