Split This Rock is a grassroots effort—a people’s movement. We’ll need everyone’s involvement to make it happen. Everyone who donates will be thanked on the website. And if you’re able to give $100 or more, you’ll be thanked in the Festival program or other printed materials.
Thanks largely to the support and participation of so many of you, our first two Split This Rock Poetry festivals, in March 2008 and March 2010, were tremendously successful. You—and many others—have asked us to make the festival a regular event and to build Split This Rock into a permanent home for progressive poets.
We hope you will stay involved. We have a lot of work to do to build an organization that genuinely represents the diversity of progressive poets working in all areas of our country and in all poetic styles today. And we know our festivals and other programming can improve and grow.
The work of Split This Rock depends on a strong financial foundation. Your tax-deductible funds and support enable us to: organize a unique national biennial poetry festival and other public events; foster opportunities for poets to participate in creative activism for social justice and peace; and provide resources that inform and inspire poets and equip them to play an active role as public citizens. Gifts of any size are deeply appreciated. We hope you'll consider giving $50, $100, or more.
