Every Tuesday Poets across UTA and Arlington come together to embrace the spoken word and keep the oral-tradition of poetry alive. The Courtyard Poet series gives poets the space to recite their original or favorite poems in front of their peers. Where some may not like the atmosphere of poetry slams, here people can be comforted by the sounds of water falls under shaded trees. The objective of the Court Yard Poets is for the performers to realize that they are actually poets. One person gets named the courtyard poet, but the event is not about competing against one another. During this series, the lessons of motherhood, physical attraction, were topics of the day.
