Staff Picks Staff Picks for February 2014
Posted by mamta on Friday, February 21, 2014 (07:35:55)

Another month and I am back with another round of staff picks. I have always found imagist poems fascinating mainly because of the clarity and precision of words and expression. The minimalist style and the visual representation paint a clear picture to the readers. My pick for this month is one such poem by a new poet where the economy of words and vivid images strike a beautiful scene.

News in Poetry Chesterton in Song
Posted by Ozymandias on Saturday, October 25, 2014 (06:15:38)

Chesterton’s poem rhymes using ABBA/ABBA/ABABAB, which doesn’t lend itself to a song structure. Our goal was to preserve the meaning while staying in the confines of a melody line that uses short phrasing to keep a relaxed, cheerful feel, as befits the underlying mood of the poem.Link!

Reviews 'Subway Stories' art and poetry inspired by underground New York City
Posted by RZS on Saturday, October 25, 2014 (02:00:12)

Poetry News: In "Subway Stories" the artwork of Sophocles Plokamakis and the poems of Apostolos Anagnostopoulos create a unique snapshot of the New York City subway system. Inanimate objects speak, and the little dramas subway riders experience every day are played out in vignettes more like flash fiction pieces than poems.
