Poetry from Rural Assembly Everywhere

Happy National Poetry Month!

The poster for this year’s National Poetry Month proclaims “There’s a Poem in this Place.” We know there is poetry across rural and Native places — in the people, landscapes, joys, struggles, and histories. We’ve heard the poetry of place in the inspiring words of the poets who have joined us on the Rural Assembly Everywhere virtual stage over the past two years. In honor, we’ve curated a playlist of new and well-known poets who have read at Everywhere. And we’ll soon announce the poets who will be at Everywhere in May! Stay tuned.
