The Great Poetry E-Book Free-For-All

The mission of the Poetry Super Highway is to expose as many people to as many other people’s poetry as possible.

What?

A crazy project in which 67 poetry e-books were freely available to all interested humans on Earth for a 24 hour period.

Throughout November we collected e-books from poets and writers interested in participating.

Then on December 1st, for a 24 hour period, anyone was able to download, for free, as many of these e-books as they liked…a poetry e-book free-for-all.

Look for the 20th annual E-Book Free-For-All on December 1st, 2024
