Rob Grant and a Bunch of Poets Celebrating Poetry!


Abandoned Mine is a quarterly online and annual print poetry journal whose mission is is to publish and promote poems that are accessible and understandable in hopes that people who presently feel intimidated by poetry will come to reframe their relationship to poetry and, in so doing, enrich their lives. Poetry can bring so much to our lives. Poetry can challenge us to more fully live out our ideals and inspire us to passionately pursue our dreams. Poetry can invite us into greater empathy for others. Poetry can help us laugh and help us cry. Poetry can make us feel not alone.The good news is there are thousands of accessible, understandable, relatable poems in the world, ready to be discovered and enjoyed.

43 Poems for People Who Don't Read Poetry is a contemporary anthology of forty-three accessible, understandable, relatable poems for people who don't yet know they like poetry, thoughtfully selected to help non-poetry readers reframe their relationship to poetry. Reading at this event will be several local poets who are represented in this anthology: Andrea Hollander, Graham Murtaugh, Peggy Perdue, Paulann Petersen, and Kim Stafford. The event will be emceed by Abandoned Mine co-editor Robert Grant, formerly of Portland and now living in New Mexico.
