I am putting together an NEA grant for the posting of poetry at Portland schools, libraries, residences, and businesses in what are being called Poetry Boxes. They are also known as Poetry Posts. Simply put they are poetry on a stick placed near a building's pedestrian thoroughfare. We already have a smartphone app prototype. To receive the up to $20,000 in matching funds I need a keynote speaker who is an expert on Emily Dickinson, Robinson Jeffers, and/or Henry Longfellow. The one question I need answered at this time is...
Are you or do you know of someone who is a Dickinson/Jeffers/Longfellow expert?
Thank you for your time and guidance,
