100 Thousand Poets for Change, or 100TPC.org, is a global grassroots academic group specializing in the humanities, particularly poetry, music, and the literary arts. It was based in 2011 by poet/artist/musician Michael Rothenberg and poet/translator/artist Terri Carrion, and focuses on a worldwide occasion every September.

This initiative crossed my radar in 2011 when it was based. I fell in love with the concept of it, the world in solidarity for peace, sustainability and social justice. What may very well be extra great? Since I’m disabled and homebound I couldn’t host an occasion and even attend one. I made a decision that there have been most likely others who wish to take part however for one purpose or one other couldn’t achieve this. Thus, The BeZine Digital 100,00zero Poets and Others for Change was born. This makes it doable for anybody, regardless of the place they dwell or what their circumstance, to hitch in 100TPC so long as they’ve entry to a pc. Folks can do a neighborhood or regional occasion and be part of with our digital occasion as effectively ought to they care to take action.

About two years after we began doing Digital 100TPC, I “met”  Michael Dickel and invited him to hitch The Bardo Group Beguines, our core group, and he quickly volunteered to be our digital 100TPC grasp of ceremonies. This has turn out to be one in all our extra pleasant yearly traditions. Michael may also take the lead on the September challenge of the Zine, which honors 100TPC themes.
