“Poetry is an agile and potent tool for responding to crises and current events. Each of the poets featured in Poetry of Crisis and Community uses her voice to reflect on the world around us, whether local or global, in the moment, so it is fitting that this Women’s History Month event will support relief efforts in the aftermath of the devastating earthquakes in Syria and Turkey.” Wallace explained.
