a virtual World Poetry Day by impepho press, Hear My Voice, and Bridges

World Poetry Day, impepho press, virtual via zoom

If we are to be in crisis, let us at least have poetry!!!

Kim Addonizio wrote: “Writing a poem in such times may feel like fiddling while Rome burns. Yet we’re poets. Writing is what we do in the world – or part of it anyway – and as ephemeral as it might sometimes seem, the making of poems is a necessary act, one that allies itself with hope rather than despair.”

On World Poetry Day, impepho press, in collaboration with Bridges – A PanAfrican Movement and Hear My Voice are pulling together poets and poetry lovers who are deciding to align themselves with hope rather than dispair.
