For now, The Poetry Question is taking an extended hiatus. It has been an absolute honor to work with you all, and have the distinct pleasure of reviewing your words, or publishing your “Power of Poetry” essays. You have changed my life, and the lives of so many around this crazy world of poetics. This site was started in order to inspire high school students, and teachers, and it grew to so much more than I could have ever imagined. Thank you to Doran Simmons, and Jamaal Allan, for helping to create this crazy journey, and to Courtney Dawn Margolin, Taylor Mali, Wil Gibson, Jenny Drai, and everyone else who contributed with reviews, or commentary, or essays.
From the bottom of my overflowing heart, I thank each and every writer, reader, contributor, supporter of The Poetry Question. The crazy idea that we have close to 4,000 people between our social networks, and our subscribers. I never imagined this would be more than a website focused on high school teaching and learning. What a dream come true. The mission will never change. Poetry will always be relevant. Keep reading, loving, and encouraging one another to use their words to empower the world.
