Split this Rock

Poetry‘s March 2014 issue features 16 poets who will be attending and featured at Split This Rock Poetry Festival: Poems of Provocation & Witness in Washington D.C. In an introduction to the portfolio, Sarah Browning writes, “poetry can remind us of the true stories of our lives, rescuing those stories from the forces bent on shaping us to their purposes: that we become silent, fearful, distracted by mass entertainment and celebrity culture. Split This Rock celebrates and promotes poets doing this important work.”

The poets are Sheila Black, Yusef Komunyakaa, Eduardo C. Corral, Natalie Diaz, Franny Choi, Gayle Danley, Joy Harjo, Maria Melendez Kelson, Dunya Mikhail, Shailja Patel, Danez Smith, Anne Waldman, Wang Ping, Myra Sklarew, Claudia Rankine, and Tim Seibles.
