Fifty cents. That’s all it costs to pop a poem from the poetry-dispensing machine in the lobby of the University of Chicago Press. The poems are written by students and Press employees; the money goes toward book purchases for Working in the Schools (WITS).

Manuscript editor Yvonne Zipter was inspired by a similar Chicago program and was able to borrow a gumball machine to put her inspiration into action.

Just imagine…soda and candy machines, newspaper racks…dispensing poems…

Read more about the University of Chicago Press ‘poemball’ machine then go chew on some poetry.
