      Split This Rock Poetry Festival calls poets to a  greater role in public life
      and fosters a national network of activist poets.  Building the audience for
      poetry of provocation and witness from our home in the  nation's capital, we
      celebrate poetic diversity and the transformative power of  the imagination.
      Featuring readings, workshops, panels, contests, walking tours,  film,
      parties,
      and activism! See the website for the incredible line-up of  poets, including
      Mark Doty, Sonia Sanchez, Martín Espada, Naomi Shihab Nye, and  many more.
      Split This Rock is cosponsored by DC Poets Against the War, Sol &  Soul,
