Poetry by and for the 99%!

Recently we sent out a list of 25 of our favorite poetry books of 2011 (see below). 18 were by people of color; 15 by women. All engage the world in visionary and creative ways.

Compare Split This Rock's list to some by The Other Guys. We were thinking of linking to some of those Guys's lists. But rather than point fingers, we'd prefer to promote the poets we love, the poets who are telling the true story of what it is to be alive today in the United States, in all its variety and beauty and madness and disaster.

If you value this work of amplifying the voices of poets of conscience, p
lease consider a year-end gift to Split This Rock.

Here are four easy ways to give:
  • Give online - Click here to give securely using your credit card.
  • Give by mail - Send a check or money order made out to Split This Rock to 1112 16th Street, NW, Suite 600, Washington, DC 20036.
  • Register for Split This Rock Poetry Festival - Add a donation when you register for the festival at, helping others who might not otherwise be able to attend.

Your tax-deductible gift to Split This Rock supports essential voices and movements for change.

In the words of June Jordan, whose life and work we will honor at the festival in March, We are the ones we have been waiting for. Please join with us today.

With gratitude and hopes for peace in 2012,

Split This Rock Team
