Little pop-up poetry booths are some of my favorite things on Earth. I love poets just scribbling a quick poem for someone for a donation to a cause (or as a living!). It's such an engaging and intimate way to connect with a stranger. I had no idea that you could call and get the experience over the phone, but you can at Pride Poets.
For Pride Month this year, Pride Poets is donating $15 for each poem from an anonymous donor to the LA LGBT Center. The event will take place June 11 through 13 so be sure to jump on in this weekend! You can also peruse the site for poetry and other inspiration.
