Split This Rock's work is a dedication to poetry that speaks truth to power, a balm through times of threat & high stakes, an affirmation & celebration of communities that are most at risk, and a call to deeper connection & community. If Split This Rock’s poetry, gatherings, and resources have nourished, awakened, incited, validated, calmed, held, or affirmed you: please consider supporting our work by buying merch, making a one-time donation, and/or becoming a sustaining monthly donor. No contribution is too small, and every dollar goes toward realizing Split This Rock's mission. Support this home for social justice poetry today!
