Our passion for poetry guides us to encourage people of all ages and backgrounds to participate in the infinite possibilities of the written word. We conduct workshops, contests, outreach programs and readings to promote poetry in the community.
We have joined up with the Arts and Education Council's new power2give program to raise funding for outreach workshops with abused women in the region. Follow this link and make a gift with your credit card (very simple process), and help us keep Jennifer Fandel and other poet educators in this context: SAFE AND STRONG THROUGH POETRY. We only have 90 days to raise $2000 for this project. RIGHT NOW, corporate sponsors are matching 50% of your gift.... so don't procrastinate!
