The Poetry Game spreads love, happiness, fun, learning, and creativity throughout the world. It’s like the Johnny Appleseed of poetry for the people. The Poetry Game can be used for having fun with friends, teaching ages 10 to adult and seniors, learning languages, and building community. Our organization is the nonprofit Poetry Game Project. The Poetry Game was invented by a group of friends around the dinner table in Mt. Pleasant, DC, and turned into a beautiful game by a class at the University of Maryland’s Writers. The Poetry Game Project is coordinated by Zahara Heckscher with an insanely fabulous team.
