Split This Rock Issue of Beltway Poetry Now Online
Here\’s the latest from Beltway Poetry Quarterly:
We begin 2008 with a rousing new issue of the journal, celebrating political poetry \”borne out of a hunger.\” The Split This Rock Issue features seventeen poets who are participating in the upcoming festival of the same name, either as organizers or readers.
As co-editor Regie Cabico writes in his introduction, these poets sing \”about gentrification, pop culture, immigration, war, heritage, disability, history and American iconography\” to create a home \”in the gut of a government that should hear, swallow, and ingest verses of provocation and witness.\”
Split This Rock Poetry Festival will take place in Washington, DC March 20-23, 2008. In addition to Beltway Poetry Quarterly, other co-sponsoring organizations include the Institute for Policy Studies, Sol and Soul, The White Crane Institute, Washington Friends of Walt Whitman, and Beloit Poetry Journal.

Winona Addison * Naomi Ayala * Sarah Browning * Grace Cavalieri * Teri Ellen Cross * Heather Davis * Joel Dias-Porter * Yael Flusberg * Brian Gilmore * E. Ethelbert Miller * Princess of Controversy * Tanya Snyder * Susan Tichey * Melissa Tuckey * Dan Vera * Rosemary Winslow * Kathi Wolfe
