Poesia Para La Gente (Poetry for the People) is a program that brings poetry to the people of the community in non-traditional spaces/places. Some of these places have been affected, in one way or another, by economical hardship or various forms of social stigmas. All locations are unique in providing a safe setting for artistic expression.
PPLG is curated and hosted by Jessica Ceballos

“Poetry on Demand” has become a popular form of delivering poetry to the masses, an alternative to book publishing, and for some – another way to make a buck. We’ve decided to take it a bit further.
