How do we share poetry resources with everyone?
And because we’re based in Iowa City, we ask the question slightly differently. How do we share the wealth of literary resources in Iowa City, a UNESCO City of Literature and home to the Iowa Writers' Workshop, with all poets? Poets of all ages, incomes, identities, and experience levels?
