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.
From twenty-six to over thirty-six, from A and Bs to alifs and bays, from leading left to leading right, from English to Urdu, I am reclaiming my mother tongue, my birthright, writing what I once could not read, could not love.
