Introduction to Splendid Wake-up
The purpose of the Splendid Wake-up blog is to bring systematic attention to the Splendid Wake project, a massive endeavor to document poets and poetry in the Greater Washington, DC area from 1900 to current day.
The Splendid Wake-up blog supports the Splendid Wake project goal to get people to write about poets, poetry events, poetry movement, and anything that was produced or happened within the geography and timeframe named and then to send these essays to the wiki administered through Special Collections of the Gelman Library at The George Washington University.
How to submit to the Splendid Wake wiki: Send essays, biographies, vignettes to Jennifer King at JenKing @ gwu.edu.
