Bringing Poetry to the People

The Poetry Foundation and the University of Utah Press have collaborated to publish Blueprints: Bringing Poetry into Communities, an e-book filled with renowned poets and community leaders talking about how they brought poetry to diverse areas. People interested in infusing poetry into their own communities will also find tips on how to do so, along with program ideas and tried-and-true methods. Download a free copy of the e-book here.
