The World Poetry Movement (WPM)/Movimiento Mundiale de Poesia (MMP) is pleased to announce to the world its next major event, which is called:

       A      LEAP      FORWARD

and will take place E V E R YW H E R E on the Leap-year Day and Night, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY  29, 2012. The Co-ordinating Committee of the WPM/MMP urges all poets, groups involved with poetry throughout the world, to begin organizing events in their particular areas----whether it involves cities, small towns or villages---under the umbrella of A LEAP FORWARD.

It may seem only a coincidence but the Occupy Wall Street movement that began of September 17. 2011 occurred within the process of the call for 100 Thousand Poets for Change, an event supported by the WPM that manifested on September 24 of last year. And we have seen that, with th Occupy movement bursting out and proliferating all over, “there’s a poem being written by the people of the world” and it is filled with cries for justice and real democracy, with all the aspects of life----from the economic to the ecological---that were part of the very formation of the WPM itself, simply because they are part of the fabric of people’s yearnings everywhere.

Events that will be multiple leaps forward under A LEAP FORWARD moniker---events with poets who, in the past year, (what with Tunisia, Egypt, Wisconsin, to name but a few), have been catalyzed by dynamic inspiration and realize their consciousness of the world has grown by leaps and bounds, can reveal those passionate leaps as part of the great flow of events on Leap-year Day and Night, 2012, and collectively move the whole world forward toward the democracy that all of us are dying for and want to attain before we die.
