Hey y'all! As some of you know, I recently joined the Mass Poetry team as their Events and Communications Coordinator and I'm excited to say that one of the first initiatives I'm taking the lead on is our "Raise Your Verse" crowdfunding campaign.
Raise Your Verse is a six-week writing campaign that brings together poets, supporters, community members, and friends alike to help Mass Poetry raise $20,000+ for our innovative programming. From September 19th through the end of October, participants can write poems of any style to share with their readers in exchange for donations to Mass Poetry.
In exchange for any and all donations to my page, at the end of the six weeks, I'll be sharing a small zine of my poetry. Donations $50 and above will receive the zine with a customized dedication and thank you note. Thank you in advance for your support, donations, and consideration.
What if I want to make my own page for Raise Your Verse?
You totally can and we'd absolutely appreciate your support. If you want to start your own fundraising page and share poetry in exchange for donations to Mass Poetry, visit the link below to the main "Raise Your Verse" page and follow the directions there!
You do not have to identify as a writer or poet to participate in Raise Your Verse! You can write poetry of your own to share or you can choose to share poetry by other writers that you love and want to share with your followers.
