Thank You to Our Partners & Donors

You make it happen! Thank you for believing in the power of poetry and for supporting free community access to live Arts & Culture with your gift to Poetry Palooza! Your generous donations helped launch Central Iowa's first major celebration of poetry and poets in 20 years.


You recognized the time is right to illustrate how much words matter through the common bond of extraordinary poetry. Thank you for:

  • Encouraging established and emerging poets to hone their craft

  • Recognizing the unique and universal healing power of poetry

  • Expanding intergenerational and urban-rural communication

  • Enriching the climate of Arts & Culture in Central Iowa

With gratitude from all of us at Poetry&, thank you.
