Invest in the Power of Poetry!

Split This Rock Poetry Festival: Poems of Provocation & Witness 2016 will only be possible through the generosity of its supporters.

Attracting over 600 people to our nation’s capital for four days of readings, workshops, panel discussions, youth programming, open mics, and activism, Split This Rock Poetry Festival is known as an affirming space for people from a wide spectrum of backgrounds to gather and connect. The festival provides opportunities to explore how poetry offers creative transformation and healing for our world. Sessions and featured readings invite poetry to speak back and speak out about contemporary issues such as environmental justice, gender equity, homophobia, and racism.

We invite you to partner with Split This Rock as a sponsor of this unique event. As a sponsor, you make it possible for readings by outstanding featured poets to remain free, for festival registration to be economical, and for scholarships to be available to anyone who needs one. Sponsors gain the opportunity to connect with a unique audience of poets, activists, and literature enthusiasts. Additional benefits are listed below.

We are grateful for your consideration.
