How It Works
Give — and receive! — the gift of poetry this holiday season by joining the Secret Stanza project. Here’s how it works:
- Sign up using our form by 11:59 p.m. EST on Friday, December 9.
- On December 11, we’ll match you with your Secret Stanza giftee, and send you their name, address and details. We’ll also send YOUR information to a gifter who will be responsible for sending you a gift.
- Buy or make a poetry-related gift costing up to $15 USD (postage not included). Even if you decide to buy a gift, consider adding something personal to your package, such as a poem, an illustration, or anything related to poetry.
- Mail the package/envelope to your Secret Stanza giftee no later than December 20.
- Wait for your own gift to arrive in the mail.
Note: Secret Stanza is open to U.S. residents only.
