What is a Diminished Hexaverse? We’ll give you the details and you take it from there! Come to the Poets of the Palm Beaches to learn, listen and to share. The Poets of the Palm Beaches will host four events throughout the month of May, to which the public is welcome. They take place in different parts of Palm Beach County and are FREE. Some Poetry Readings offer Cash prizes. If you are curious, a beginner, intermediate or advanced poet, this is the organization to get involved with. The Rickie Report shares the information here.
