Author Amok-Interview with Michael Rothenberg

Poetry Friday: 100,000 Poets for Change

As poets, we are in the business of change. Every time a child reads and responds to a poem we have written, he or she is changed — even a little — by the experience.

But what if we take that change outside of personal, private experience and into the community?

On September 24, 2011 a worldwide poetry event is happening: 100,000 Poets for Change. Visit the 100 TPC website for a list of the global cities where community poetry programs are being planned.

100 TPC is the brainchild of poet Michael Rothenberg, who is visiting with me this Poetry Friday.
