At the end of June 2015, Split This Rock will launch an online poetry database, an exciting new resource filled with poetry of provocation & witness. Find the perfect poem for any occasion! Locate a poet to invite to an upcoming event! Filled with poems from our Poem of the Week series, from the winners of our annual poetry contests, from youth poets, and more, the database will be searchable by social justice themes, author’s identity, state, and geographic region.
Celebrate with us! Join us for the Poetry Database Launch Party and Silent Auction featuring DJ Phenomejon, poetry readings and performances, a demonstration of the database, and a silent auction! FREE! Come bid on a week at Wellspring House writers retreat, an hour-long massage, a personal yoga session, Pulitzer Prize-winning books signed by the author, and more. Co-sponsored by the Institute for Policy Studies.
