Mark Brazaitis attended the Split This Rock Poetry Festival in Washington, D.C.

Mark Brazaitis traveled to Washington, D.C., last week to participate on a panel and give a reading at the Split This Rock Poetry Festival. The festival's title comes from a line in the Langston Hughes poem "Big Buddy":

Don't you hear this hammer ring?
I'm gonna split this rock
And split it wide!
When I split this rock
Stand by my side.

Mark served on a panel celebrating the anthology I Go to the Ruined Place: Contemporary Poems in Defense of Global Human Rights, in which his poem "The Policeman" appears.
