Episode 103: From Rent Parties to Kickstarter: Toward a Democratic Patronage of Poetry
(Colleen Robertson Abel, Millicent Accardi, Marty McConnell, Eileen Myles, Rita Mae Reese) Have you seen your poems on blogs or pillows sold on Etsy but weren't even consulted or paid for their use? Would you like to receive payment for your poetry? Do you have a special project that needs funding? This panel will identify avenues of support for poets who make potential readers more aware of and invested in poetry as a living art form. We will explore the concept of the gift economy, aggregated sites for donations, crowdsourcing, rent parties, and more.
