The Poetry Coalition
Split This Rock is proud to be a member of The Poetry Coalition, a national alliance of nearly 30 independent poetry organizations dedicated to working together to promote the value poets bring to our culture and the important contribution poetry makes in the lives of people of all ages and backgrounds. Members are nonprofit organizations whose primary mission is to promote poets and poetry, and/or multi-genre literary organizations that serve poets in the disability community and of specific racial, ethnic, or gender identities, backgrounds, or communities. Poetry Coalition programming is made possible in part by grants from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Ford Foundation which were secured by the Academy of American Poets.
Each Spring, members present programming across the country on a theme of social importance, which has included poetry & migration, poetry & the body, poetry & democracy, poetry & protest, poetry & environmental justice, and poetry & disability justice. Programs range from publications to panels, readings, and other public events.
