How (and why) To Use Your Event Location Blog Page

Your Event Location Blog Page is an overall essential part of the 100 Thousand Poets for Change global initiative. Posting and sharing on the Event Location Blog Pages helps create community, a global community. And although the 100 TPC Facebook Event Page does a great job to create community and is easy to use as a hub for communication, it can’t (and won’t) become an archive or a permanent document of the entire process and outcome of this event. This is what the site is for. Feel free to copy and paste chat threads or comments from Facebook to your Event Location Blog Page that you feel should be preserved.

Stanford University, historically known as a world leader in research, and known for its excellence in academics here in the United States has recognized 100 Thousand Poets for Change as a historical event and has decided to archive all of your event pages at as part of their LOCKSS program.

Your Event Location Blog Page at the 100TPC site and all its content will be preserved forever.

After September 24th, all the Event Location Blog Pages together will become not only a huge document of the entire initiative, and all its parts, and your participation in this global initiative, but also an important archive of contemporary world poetry.
