Poetry for Ukraine

On March 9th, 2022, at 1pm CST (that’s 7pm GMT),  I will be one of the poets reading  for POETRY FOR UKRAINE 🇺🇦, An International Fundraiser.

While poetry cannot stop bullets or protect the skies, Ukrainian poets have been putting into the words the heart and spirit, the joys and sorrows, the strengths and sacrifices of the Ukrainian people for hundreds of years. The fact that this reading will occur on Taras Shevchenko’s birthday underscores the fact.
 
Ukraine has been a target, a battleground, and a prize for centuries. After all that, to achieve independence for three short decades and have it threatened so brutally by Putin’s megalomaniac ambition and insecurity…this is why the Ukrainian people fight.
 
The rest of us must do what we can to help—to have their backs, to hold them up, to catch them, to join our voices with theirs.

In support of Ukraine, this online poetry reading will be raising funds for The Ukrainian Red Cross & The Refugee Council. The participating poets are

POETS:

Valya Dudycz Lupescu

Nicole Yurcaba

Julia Kolchinsky Dasbach

Joy David

Stephen Kolmarnyckyj

Tetyana Denford

Oleh Shynkarenko

Charlotte Shevchenko Knight
