In about 3 months, Split This Rock returns from fallow season! Poem of the Week will begin again and The Quarry online social justice poetry database will continue to expand its offerings. As part of the Poetry Coalition, we’ll offer a month of themed programming in April. Board members will be staffing a table at the AWP book fair at the end of March to begin re-engagement. We’re excited to unveil more of our plans as April draws closer!
In the meantime, this month we’re thrilled to shine a spotlight on poems that rock our world. First up are the 6 poems Split This Rock nominated for the Pushcart Prize! Check them out below. Throughout the month, we invite you to join us in drinking from the wellspring of poetry as we present a round up of favorites from The Quarry.
We know well how a single poem is a perpetual gift to its audience -- nourishing us again each time we receive it. We hope the poems we share this month blossom into an infinite resource of creative stimulation, activation, inspiration, and soothing for you.
We're gathering seeds for a big opportunity -- you're the key! The Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation has once again gifted us with a challenge grant. For every donation from a new supporter or increased gift from an existing donor we receive, they will match it -- up to $15,000! If you believe in what Split This Rock embodies, how it holds space, and what it is uniquely positioned and equipped to do in the field of poetry, would you help us secure this $30,000 investment by giving your best gift today?
Visit Split This Rock's online giving portal to make a one-time donation or become a sustaining monthly donor today.
Every donation during fallow season helps prepare us for a harvest of programming & work culture more deeply rooted in our core values. Learn more about what we're striving to manifest in Split This Rock's future at our website.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed time, energy, and resources throughout the years -- and especially during the pandemic! Your investments and partnerships make Split This Rock's bravest efforts possible.
With appreciation always,
Split This Rock
