crowdfunded poetry

February 27, 2016

Kickstarter

Now and then, it’s instructive (and fun) to visit crowdfunding sites — Kickstarter, gofundme, Indiegogo — and search the term poetry. As you might expect, the bulk of the requests are for books and chapbooks, some supported vigorously, some not at all. But then there are other projects: readings, podcasts, CDs, films, festivals, educational programs, websites, tech support, you name it. While the requests vary widely in their level of sophistication and outcomes, there’s little doubt that poetry is happening, if not thriving.

Have a look. Pledge a few bucks. The next request could be yours.
