2017-02/25 Poetry with Edge with Seretta Martin
What’s missing in much of the American poetry written today? Does it win the hearts and minds of readers or has it become too detached and cerebral? Joining the revolution that Tony Hoagland calls the “edge of sustained, concerted thought – jubilant, freewheeling, associative, collage poetry,” we’ll encounter, discuss and write poems with EDGE.
Let’s break the shackles! Let’s challenge the things we know about poetry. Let’s move out of our comfort zones. We will discuss what draws a reader into a poem. What makes a poem fresh and innovative?
