Split This Rock believes that as citizens and artists, our obligation has never been greater. Our intent is twofold: To call poets to a greater role in public life and to bring the vital, important, challenging poetry of witness that is being written by American poets today to a larger and more diverse audience.
The goals of Split This Rock are:
To celebrate the poetry of witness and provocation being written, published, and performed in the United States today.
To call poets to a greater role in public life and to equip them with the tools they need to be effective advocates in their communities and in the nation.
