Bridge Benefits

Whether you're a poet or a mentor, the Bridge community will help you grow.

we need a better community for poets.

The Bridge was born out of a belief that we need a better community for poets. We see two main groups of poets in need. One, students looking for mentors to critique their work, but without the time or money to invest in a workshop or writing program. Two, poets with publishing and teaching credentials struggling to find—or keep—teaching jobs. Our hope is that the Bridge connects these two groups. Simple as that.
