Split This Rock panel

Possessed of This City: How Split This Rock Brings the Spirit of DC Poetry to the Nation

This panel takes place at Library of Congress, in LJ-119 from from 11:15 am-12:15 pm.

DC's poets have long engaged the wider world in their work while creating community here at home, supporting one another's writing and activism. Split This Rock was founded five years ago in this tradition, calling poets to the center of public life and fostering a national network of socially engaged poets. Four founders and key leaders will discuss what is uniquely DC about Split This Rock and the impact our city is thereby having on the literary life of our nation.

About Split This Rock: Split This Rock calls poets to a greater role in public life and fosters a national network of socially engaged poets. Building the audience for poetry of provocation and witness from our home in the nation's capital, we celebrate poetic diversity and the transformative power of the imagination.

Split This Rock is dedicated to revitalizing poetry as a living, breathing art form with profound relevance in our daily lives and struggles. Our programs integrate poetry of provocation and witness into movements for social justice and support the poets of all ages who write and perform this vital work.
