Want to send a love poem to someone…in Braille? Let someone know you are thinking of them by sending them a “Secret Sonnet”. And let Soul of Miami help you share your thoughts with your special someone.
Secret Sonnets is an original project for O, Miami 2015 that brings attention to a beautiful and important code that allows the visually impaired to read. Emily Connor and her team of local students will transcribe your original poem into uncontracted Braille, then mail it to your someone special. Each poem will include a Braille/Print alphabet cheat sheet for decoding.
Those interested, please visit http://omiami.submittable.com/submit/40207
The submitted poem should be an original body of work, less than 14 lines long, and the intended recipient must be a resident of Miami-Dade County. It must be submitted before the April 15, 2015 deadline.
From April 11-20, 2015, the poems will be transcribed into Braille and checked for errors. Beginning on April 21, 2015, the Brailled poems will be mailed using USPS. And if you would like, Soul of Miami would love to publish your poem on our web site.
