As National Poetry Month begins, you’ll no doubt find yourself with an unusual glut of literary events to be excited about. One of the most unique and talent-rich of such events, put on by the good folks of URBAN-15 with support from the Texas Commission on the Arts, is the fourth annual Mega Corazón. The eight-hour, poetry-centric event will feature a large and diverse group of poets, beginning with three hours of youth-focused poetry and poetry from young people. While the full schedule of readers for this veritable buffet of poetic expression is not yet finalized, poets already confirmed include Dr. Carmen Tafolla and Rosemary Catacalos (both former state poet laureates), Jenny Browne (current San Antonio poet laureate), Natalia Treviño, Bryce Milligan, Eduardo Vega, Jesse Cardona, Andrea “Vocab” Sanderson, John Philip Santos, Naomi Shihab Nye and more. All told, the poets of Mega Corazón comprise a diverse cross-section of poetic modes, performance styles, and influences. One of the coolest aspects of Mega Corazón, especially relevant for those who are unable to physically attend the event, is that the entire thing will be broadcast for the word to see at urban15.org/live-stream. Free, 1-19pm Thu, URBAN-15, 2500 S. Presa St., (210) 736-1500, urban15.org.
