I've been connected with Mass Poetry since 2015 when I worked as their program assistant. I've seen the amazing work they do first hand, bringing poetry to the public through programs like Student Day of Poetry, U35, and Poetry on the T.
To support Mass Poetry and the incredible work they do I will be participating in this year's Raise Your Verse, a six-week fundraising campaign.
Any donation amount will receive a sticker and zine with my poetry at the end of the fundraiser.
Donations $40 will receive a print of a poem.
Donations over $60 will receive a poetry T-shirt (examples pictured above).
Thank you in advance for your support!
About Raise Your Verse
Raise Your Verse is a six-week writing campaign that brings together poets, supporters, community members, and friends alike. Over six weeks, poets, writers, and community members will help Mass Poetry raise $20,000+ to benefit our innovative programming. Participants can write poems, haikus, free verse, sonnets, epistolary poems—any style, really, even prose—to share with their readers in exchange for donations to Mass Poetry. People can form teams or forge ahead alone. Most importantly, it should be fun!
