Poetry across America: Organizations Meet to Promote the Value Poets Bring to Culture
by Jacquelyn Malone
Maybe the biggest confab of American poetry organizations is taking place right now (November 5 – 7) in Santa Fe, NM. And Mass Poetry is there, along with fifteen other large poetry organizations.
We’re making available the press release from the meeting, not simply to show you our status as seen among other literary associations, but to give you access to the most amazing statistics about the popularity of poetry in America – especially among young people.
So read the press release here and give it up for poetry! Hear it? The sound of thousands of hands clapping.
