Lost Horse Press and the Bonner County Human Rights Task Force are joining forces for the 10th anniversary celebration of 100,000 POETS FOR CHANGE, a poetry and music online event for local writers/musicians/artists/students to express their ideas for positive change in our community, in ourselves, in our country, and in the world. Join Sandpoint poets, artists, and musicians as they connect with artists all over the globe to express their aspirations for a better world. The Sandpoint event will begin on Saturday, 26 September 2020. Email your poems, artwork, or photographs that will be displayed on the Bonner County Human Rights Task Force website to share with our community and the world in an online gallery exhibit. Your work will also be featured on the 100,000 Poets for Change website. Send original poems or artwork—as a JPEG please—to firstname.lastname@example.org by Saturday, 26 September 2020. We look forward to presenting your ideas for positive change in the world, in your community, in your lives.
Thank you to all who submitted poems, songs, and art to 100,000 POETS FOR CHANGE 2020. It’s been an especially difficult year—unsettled political climate, COVID, dramatic climate changes, and an upcoming presidential election fraught with adversities and conflict. But, as we acknowledge with our poems and art, there is hope. There is hard work. And, there is us. We will overcome!
