Poets in Oxford, Mississippi are gearing up to participate in 100,000 Poets for Change.
We will scatter short and striking poems in a variety of ways. We will print and hand out
poems on bookmarks, coasters, broadsides, post-its, and cups. We will also display poems
in chalk drawings, store-front windows, etc.

On September 24th–the day of a big football home game–people in Oxford who never read poetry will have no choice.
We’re going to plaster our town with lines and stanzas.
