Dial-A-Poem

Dial-A-Poem democratizes poetry as a part of the connecting tissue between Global Poetry Consortium Member schools. Each week GPC invites students, faculty, poets and all GPC constituents to participate in Dial-A-Poem by recording their favorite poem on a BWL answering machine. Thereafter, members of the community are able to call in from any phone and listen to their peers, teachers, or mentors read their favorite poems. If you are interested in recording a poem please reach out to Globalpoetryconsortium@gbwl.org. We hope you enjoy the archive of each week’s Dial-A-Poem.
