Sponsored by Workhorse, Lexington Poetry Month is an easy to use
platform for poets to publish and share their work in an attractive
way. The community is supportive and diverse, commenting and
encouraging one another throughout June. Money we raise goes
to maintaining the cost of the website and publishing the yearly
anthology. Our goals are to provide every poet (~150) a copy of
the anthology, lower printing costs, and expand opportunities
offered during Lexington Poetry Month, such as featured readings
and poetry workshops.
As a transplant to Kentucky, I have been going to as many literary readings as possible. It is important for me to immerse myself in the culture of Creative Writing here in Lexington. It is an enrichment to me, and in the process, an enrichment for my students. I don't function well without poetry. Signing up with LexPoMO is a challenge I would like to take.
