“demockracy” a collection of poems published by PlainView Press examines the Bush legacy of war and destruction in Iraq. This full-length work by poet Mike Maggio of Herndon, VA, “demockracy” documents the anti-war sentiment of the nation in a time of rising opposition to the war.

“Poetic People Power” was founded by writer/performance poet Tara Bracco to create an ongoing project that combines poetry and activism. Each year a diverse group of poets are commissioned to write new works on a political or social issue. The new poems are then brought to a public audience in April during National Poetry Month. In 2007 “Poetic People Power” addressed the issue of universal health care and presented “Sick & Tired,” a call for Universal care through their poetry.
These are only some highlights of the Writing grants given in 2007.
