Yaddyra Peralta

The Miami Poetry Collective presents a reading of "how-to" poetry from their 10th anniversary issue of Cent Journal. Local experts will share poetic advice on how to write your guts out, how to weather a hurricane, how to survive moving away from Miami, and more. The Miami Poetry Collective was founded by poet Campbell McGrath in 2008. The Collective produces the Cent Journal series and runs Poem Depot events in and around Miami. Yaddyra Peralta's poetry has appeared in Ploughshares, Jai-Alai, Abe's Penny, Tigertail, Hinchas de Poesia, among others. She was a recent Writer-in-Residence at the Betsy Hotel's Writer's Room in South Beach.
