Split This Rock Poetry Festival 2020 - Registration Subsidy Fund
Split This Rock Poetry Festival: Poems of Provocation & Witness 2020 will be held on March 26-28, 2020 -- and it's important to us that the gathering's cost isn't prohibitive. We are happy to offer a registration subsidy fund to defray the cost of registration fees for anyone who would not otherwise be able to attend. Awards are made on a rolling basis, so be sure to apply early.
Awards from the subsidy fund are given based on economic need. Split This Rock is committed to assembling a diverse group of participants at its poetry festivals. Priority is given to youth and seniors, poets and activists of color, disabled poets and activists, SGL/LGBTQ+ poets and activists, undocumented poets and activists, and poets and activists from within other groups experiencing structural and historical violence.
Awards cover the cost of registration only. Low-cost housing options are posted on the Where to Stay page of our website.
