Maya Angelou Garden Party to be a podcast this year

Organizers of the Maya Angelou Garden Party announced, recently, that the event will be a podcast this year.

On the website devoted to the event, it is announced that due to COVID-19, “the garden party will no longer be able to take place in person.  Although this news is disheartening to many, we are choosing to transition the programming into a pre-recorded podcast that will be curated and shared over the coming weeks.”

The announcement adds that “if you would like top submit an original poem, spoken word, or audio clip to be included in the podcast,” that can be done through a link on the website.  The submission will be reviewed by the Garden Party Committee, according to the announcement.

Additional information is available here.
