Split This Rock: Chapbook
At AWP, one of the many gems I picked up was the spring issue of the Split This Rock Chapbook, produced by the Beloit Poetry Journal.
It features poems of witness and resistance by poets who will be featured at the Split This Rock Festival, March 20-23 in Washington, D.C. This chapbook includes Jimmy Santiago Baca, Robert Bly, Mark Doty, Martín Espada, Carolyn Forché, Sam Hamill, Joy Harjo, Galway Kinnell, Stephen Kuusisto, E. Ethelbert Miller, Naomi Shihab Nye, Alix Olson, Alicia Ostriker, Ishle Yi Park, Sonia Sanchez, Patricia Smith, Susan Tichy, and Pamela Uschuk.
Also had the chance to attend the Split This Rock panel at AWP and was blown away by E. Ethelbert Miller, Martín Espada, Alix Olson, and Alicia Ostriker.
