Purpose:
To promote poetry in South Florida and recognize and support local poets in memory of Hanna Kahn.


Projects:
Hosting readings, lectures and workshops by nationally and internationally recognized poets. These presentations were often done in conjunction with other groups such as the Miami International Bookfair, University of Miami, Florida International University and the Florida Center for the Book; The Wild Horse Poetry Series in February, May and August at the Warehaus 57; Quartetto Poetica a joint venture with Nova Southeastern University each April and September; The Electric Chair is South Florida's most unique poetry reading in which a select poet deserving recognition is brought before a small, invited audience to read and discuss his or her work. Other readings and workshops by the Hannah Kahn Poetry Foundation were presented in Dade County Schools, Dade and Broward bookstores and the Florida Center for the Book in Fort Lauderdale.
