Send These Poets to Split This Rock

Split This Rock is a national poetry organization that is about- Calling poets to a greater role in public life and fostering a national network of socially engaged poets.
A group of six poets from the Twin Cities have been invited to give a reading as part of the Poetry Festival in DC this April.  Louis Alemayehu , Lisa Marie Brimmer , Erin Sharkey , Coya White Hat-Artichoker , Michael Kleber-Diggs and Ellen Marie Hinchcliffe 

Please help us get to DC for this amazing gathering of poets including Kwame Dawes, Sharon Olds,  Solmaz Sharif, Terisa Siagatonu,  Javier Zamora, Sonia Sanchez. No better time for POETRY to shake DC!  Funds raised will help with airfare and housing.  Thank you so much for your support!  

The inspiration for this reading comes out of the Walk Towards It  anthology that was released as an act of resistance on January 20, 2017.
