A few days ago the DC Examiner published an excellent article about Split This Rock's campaign to increase the frequency of poetry reviews in the Washington Post. The story does a great job of introducing the campaign and includes an interview with Sarah Browning, director of Split This Rock. Here's a excerpt:
Poets from all racial and ethnic backgrounds, of all ages, are writing, publishing, and performing work in a huge variety of styles and taking on the pressing issues of our time, helping us wrestle with our difficult and contradictory world. We know that more residents of our area, including many Washington Post readers, would benefit from exposure to these voices, the poets who are telling the true stories of our times.

Thank you for the support, and keep writing letters!
