Our Calling

Crossing Limits is an interfaith literary organization established in 1998 to promote solidarity amongst varying faith and cultural traditions. Our mission is centered upon celebrating and utilizing poetry as a sacred tool to nurture spiritual communities dedicated to pluralism. We believe poetry is both an instrument of beautification and agent for social change, highlighting the intersections of faith and social injustice. 

Why Poetry

The world is profoundly shaped by two things — stories told and the memories they leave behind. Poetry is a vehicle for individual expression, and a tool for honest dialogue through which we can promote deeper understanding and allyship in service towards a more just, equitable and compassionate society. We believe in the power of words and the principle that human-to-human interaction can transform the world.
