The 11th Annual Poetry Super Highway
Great Poetry Exchange

The mission of the Poetry Super Highway is to expose as many people to as many other people's poetry as possible.

What?

The 11th Annual Poetry Super Highway Great Poetry Exhange is a project in which 78 poets pledged to send their poetry book, publication, or recording to another randomly selected participant. In exchange, each one will receive one of these books, publications or recordings, randomly selected from thelist of participants.

Thanks to the 78 poets who made this project a huge success by promising to send their publication to another rand
omly selected poet somewhere else in the world.

Look for the 12th annual Great Poetry Exchange in February, 2013
