In a time when “othering” has been weaponized, poets reflect on the consequences of being othered - the

sexuality, age, (dis)abilities, (mental) health, etc. Poet? Find out how you can participate.
Poets Creating Conversation challenges poets to circle loosely around a theme or issue to create a broad, multi-dimensional “conversation” between poems, poets, and audience.
