August Write Night Global Challenge: Share Free Minds Poems

In August, Free Minds is calling on our volunteers to share our members’ poems far and wide by asking your friends, family, colleagues, or other members of your community in other cities to read and respond to Free Minds poetry. Instead of a public event in August, we hope folks will read and respond to poetry by incarcerated writers all month long!

For August Write Night, instead of having one single event on a specific night, we are posing a challenge to our volunteers to see how far we can spread Free Minds poems geographically during the whole month of August. We ask folks to reach out to friends, family, and colleagues in all corners of the globe. Encourage them to join our movement by reading and responding to our members’ poetry online. Fill out this form and we will send you poems. Contact emily@freemindsbookclub.org if you have any questions. We can’t wait to let our members know how many cities and countries their words have reached.

Our staff and Poet Ambassadors thank you for joining us “on the same page!”

Here is an example of a poem with comments from past virtual Write Nights:A page with a poem in the center of the page, and brightly colored, typed comments all around it
