In addition to Split This Rock Poetry Festival 2014 readings, panels, workshops, and opportunities to build community across barriers, this year we will also showcase the significant role of publishers and those who bring us the kinds of writing Split This Rock celebrates: impassioned, visionary, and truth-telling. And we will bring the critically important work of social change groups to poets, activists, and the public.
