Poetry Bomb

While I was at Abrams Books, I launched Poetry Bomb in partnership with Tumblr. It was essentially a continuation of the work I began at Knopf with the Celebrate Poetry project. Poetry Bomb was a month long online celebration of poetry during National Poetry Month. Poets, writers, and readers alike were encouraged to submit poetry, and each day throughout the month numerous poems were published on the site. The project culminated with a live event featuring established poets — Melissa Broder, Leigh Stein, Cathy Park Hong, and Paul Muldoon — as well as emerging poets from the Tumblr community — Faith Hahn and Kevin Grijalva.
