Will You Support the Fund?

Our 3rd annual Hands On Stanzas Scholarship Campaign is live!


Please: donate and spread the word for our student poets across Chicago. And check out our fabulous new video of student poets reading their own work. It’ll make your day better, we promise.

You can join us tonight at the All Schools Reading at the Poetry Foundation, to celebrate! (Invitation below.)

All details on the campaign can be found here. Thank you for your support, and for spreading the love!
