Split This Rock Poetry Festival: Poems of Provocation & Witness 2020 will be held on March 26-28, 2020 -- and it's important to us that the gathering's cost isn't prohibitive. We are happy to offer a registration subsidy fund to defray the cost of registration fees for anyone who would not otherwise be able to attend. Awards are made on a rolling basis, so be sure to apply early.
Awards from the subsidy fund are given based on economic need. Split This Rock is committed to assembling a diverse group of participants at its poetry festivals. Therefore, priority is given to youth and seniors, poets and activists of color, disabled poets and activists, SGL/LGBTQ+ poets and activists, undocumented poets and activists, and poets and activists from within other groups experiencing structural and historical violence.
Awards cover the cost of registration only. Low-cost housing options are listed on the festival's Where To Stay web page at our website.
Please complete the form below by February 21 to be considered for an award. Instructions for submitting your request by email or mail are available at Split This Rock's website.
