Bringing Poetry into the Public Arena

CCW member Susan Elbe sends news about The Woodrow Hall Jumpstart Initiative, which “is a program launched in 2004 by Shoshauna Shy in Madison, Wisconsin, with the mission of bringing poetry out of the libraries, bookstores and classrooms into the general public arena.”

Susan and four other Wisconsin poets have benefited from funding provided by this initiative. For information about it http://www.poetryjumpsofftheshelf.com/initiative.html

Congratulations, Susan and all other funding recipients!
