Sponsor the "Portable Poetry Riot"

$35 of $1,200 goal

Raised by 2 people in 8 days

You can sponsor us, PW Covington and Josh Weir , as we tear through the upper Mid-West committing poetry this April.

We'll be reading and participating with local poets, artists, and freaks in Sioux Falls, Minneapolis AND St. Paul, Chicago, St. Louis and maybe a few other places...and if you aren't along our path, we don't want to leave ya behind.

Two men and a bulldog is about all the ol' Ford coupe can carry, but we'd still  love it if you tagged along.

Shit's expensive out there, and poetry...even the GREAT stuff (like ours)...still sells slower than that special shampoo they make to get rid of the crabs; SO, if you could see your way clear to kickin' us a little change to buy a gallon of gas, or a bacon omelet, or a new pipe (cause one always gets lost or broken), you get the idea...we'd make it up to ya in a variety of ways. It'd be like you were right there with us. And, if you ARE somewhere along the way, we'd love a chance to be right THERE with YOU!

Give us $5 and you're an official sponsor! We'll send ya a postcard from some place...some place cool/someplace fucked up, but someplace, out there....like, in the mail.

$25, one of us will write you a short, original, poem and, same deal, the post office will bring it to ya...

Fork over $35, and you'll get copies of both of our new books, signed, inscribed, and mailed to you, from the road.

And, for those contributing to this tour's success at the highest levels, we are offering to come to where ever, within 150 miles of our intended route, and talk poetry, read/perform for guests of your invite/choice, or just about anything.  As long as you can work with our schedule and  travel requirements  and, you've  got $150 or more to invest, we will absolutely work things out!


Here's a quick run-down on when we'll be where...keep up with either of us on our social media for updates and details:

Apr 3rd  Albuquerque, NM

Apr 6-7th Sioux Falls, SD

Apr 9-11th Minn/St Paul, MN
