What helps you through adversity?

We are now in our fourth year! This year we are working towards becoming an evidence based mental health social inclusion campaign. We now have 25 sponsored poets hosting events in cities across the US. We sponsor any kind of artist willing to share these ideas at their public events: If you missed the chance to join our replication program, you can sign up for our waitlist for the next funding cycle.

You can:

  • enjoy our artists’ work

  • become one of our artists

  • book our artists for events

  • or have us share your health care messaging campaigns

Poetry for Personal Power started as a program coordinated by the Heartland Consumer Network,  Wellness Wordworks, the American Jazz Museum, Create Your Own Reality, Park University, and Harris-Stowe State University. We are also transitioning to become our own independent 501c3 tax exempt nonprofit and independent organization.
