Gifting Poetry

Please consider donating an anthology to a school, library, literacy project or charity working with prisoners. Contact us for more information.

“As a curator of anthologies, I’ve found the sharing of poetry to be an evocative way of kindling light within the dark places of the human condition. In my experience, poetry can be like prayer, both in its composition and in its recitation. Poetry is an extraordinary conveyancer of beauty, love and forgiveness. Thus it is surely the best gift for anyone incarcerated by the bars of poverty, sorrow, loneliness, loss and even hatred.”
