Poetry on Demand: Nashville Neighborhood Project

Downtown, Jefferson Street, Germantown, and East Nashville in Districts 6, 19, and 21

The Porch Writer’s Collective was awarded $3600 to support the Poetry on Demand: Nashville Neighborhood Project. This Project will bring poetry to the people (and vice versa) in an immediate and collaborative fashion. At six select community events around the city from October 2016 to June 2017, trained poets will solicit stories from community members through a thoughtful interview process, then immediately draft a poem that captures or is informed by the individual’s story. Final works will be created into letterpress broadsides and displayed in a public exhibition.
