Split This Rock

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Split This Rock cultivates, teaches, and celebrates poetry that bears witness to injustice and provokes social change. By building the audience for poetry of provocation and witness from our home in the nation's capital, we call poets to a greater role in public life, foster a national network of socially engaged poets, and celebrate poetic diversity and the transformative power of the imagination.

Split This Rock Poetry Festival 2020: Poems of Provocation & Witness will be held March 26-28 2020! We invite poets, writers, and activists to Washington, DC for three days of featured readings, workshops, panel discussions, youth programming, activism, a social change book fair. Together we will build community, hone our skills, imagine ways forward, and explore poetry as a practice for social change. Learn more about Split This Rock and the Festival at the website.
