ONE PAUSE POETRY
Ann Arbor Area
our mission One Pause Poetry strives to make poetry accessible to all. We are non-academic and non–market-driven. One Pause Poetry honors diversity and quality in our selection process and is dedicated to supporting Michigan poets. We select both established and emerging writers for our series and website, with the goal of breaking down categories and camps and encouraging collaboration and innovation across poetic forms, the arts, and media. history One Pause Poetry @ CCMA arose in response to a direct need—university reading series were losing their funding, and Shaman Drum, a great local independent bookstore, had closed. In a time when all funding in the arts seemed bankrupt and depleted, we decided to rush in. One Pause Poetry is named after the 15th-century enlightened Zen master and poet Ikkyu Sojun, whose name means "Once Paused." Ikkyu revolutionized the aesthetics of medieval Japan—much of what we consider when we think of Japanese culture. Rock gardens, Noh Theater, calligraphy, and poetry are because of Ikkyu and the group of artists he surrounded himself with. It's something to aspire to here and now. One Pause Poetry exists with generous support from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs, the Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation, the Dam Tsig Foundation, Josh Pokempner and Gretchen Gardner, and other generous individual donors, interns, and more than forty volunteers. One Pause is also indebted to METAL, which will provide the venue for many of our upcoming events, and the Tsogyelgar Dharma Center, where our series originated.
