We received an e-mail from the organizers of the Split This Rock Festival, which will take place March 22-25 in Washington, DC, and we wanted to pass it along. This four-day poetry festival brings together poets, activists, and writers from around the country.
Featured guests include Alice Walker and other visionary and powerful voices of our time: environmental activists, youth organizers, Pulitzer-Prize winners, slam champions, poets of all ethnicities, DC-area poets, an opera librettist, translators, editors and publishers and emerging poets.
Early-bird registration lasts until February 22, 2012. There are also students rates, day rates, and scholarships.
