Our green mission has its first birthday.

Late in 2015 we initiated our green mission, which, in addition to fostering excellence in poetry, has us give a portion of any proceeds to reforestation efforts. With your help, and in collaboration with the Arbor Day Foundation, we planted sixty-four trees this year, primarily to promote hardwood diversity in Iowa, where the majority of land is now used for corn and soy production. This is our young mascot tree, a sterling linden.
