Poetry Asylum
Fundraiser for Springboard for the Arts

Poetry Asylum Poetry is raising money for Springboard for the Arts.

No one is illegal | Poetry for everyone.

Poetry Asylum creates diverse platforms outside privileged spaces to bring poetry to traditionally marginalized communities through open dialogue, innovation, collaboration & advocacy. In recognition of the urgencies of our political moment, Poetry Asylum aims to provide refuge for underrepresented voices by celebrating the expansive field of language & expression in all its forms.

We want to build networks around the idea that poetry is egalitarian, humanist & political. In a nutshell, poetry to the people, for the people, by the people. We will live in both virtual & physical realms––offering workshops, readings, events, an online magazine, etc. for established/emerging writers as well as those considered to be on the fringe: incarcerated individuals, veterans, elderly, disabled, immigrants, refugees, among others.
