The Poetry Redistribution Center


Some things are even more important than archives.

Inspired by the work of Poetry Is Not A Luxury, this ongoing collaborative project involves the demi-permanent installation of poetry in public spaces. Printable poems and wheatpasting instructions are available below. Interested in joining the project? Four simple guidelines below:

1. Credit the poet.
2. No poetry on private property without prior consent.
3. Say #2 five times fast.
4. Poetry makes nothing happen. No self promotion (tags/instagram handles/QR codes). Feel free to post pictures of redistributed poems.
