Split This Rock Poetry Festival 2016
April 14, 2016 @ 9:30 am - April 17, 2016 @ 1:00 pm
Gather with IPS and other co-sponsors in our nation’s capital for Split This Rock Poetry Festival: Poems of Provocation & Witness — four days of readings, workshops, discussions, youth voices & activism.
You are invited to our nation’s capital for a festival celebrating poetry of witness and resistance. More and more, we understand the ways that issue areas converge: earth justice requires economic and racial justice; LGBT rights and gender equality intertwine; freedom is indivisible. Split This Rock Poetry Festival 2016 offers opportunities to explore these intersections, examining the ways that poetry can help us understand connections and build alliances necessary to imagine and construct another world.
The festival will feature some of the most visionary and powerful voices of our time, representing the dynamic diversity of our world. Visit the Featured Poets page to read more about our fabulous line up for 2016.

Festival Partners: Institute for Policy Studies, Busboys and Poets, The Poetry Foundation and POETRY Magazine.
