We rely on your generous donations to maintain our health and seed our growth. Your one-time or recurring monthly donation may be used toward scholarships, honorariums, staffing, capital improvements, and utilities, and allow us to continue to offer low-cost, high-quality poetry workshops, sponsor free readings, and maintain a comprehensive, independent lending library.

Poetry Barn is a fiscally-sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a 501(c)(3) public charity, making your gift tax-deductible to the fullest extent permitted by law.
