Advocate for Poetry

Poet Matthew Dickman has a big idea: he wants us to advocate for poetry by buying a book (or two) of poems and sending them to someone in our lives (in the private or public spheres) who doesn't normally read poetry (or who we assume doesn't normally read poetry).

Read Dickman's plea here, at Tin House. He's decided on a hashtag over on Twitter so participants can share their experiences.

Good idea, yes?
