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.

Staff Picks Staff Picks for November 2013
Posted by mamta on Tuesday, November 19, 2013 (16:49:19)

November is slowly coming to an end and we are on the threshold of another new year. Autumn and winter poetry are often melancholic and sad and many times it reflects the inner feelings of the poet. Autumn poems always have wonderful visuals mainly due to the changing color of leaves that lend color to the trees and the ground once they fall. My pick of this month is one such poem which is rich in imagery with lots of color and visuals.

News in Poetry Calling all opinionated poets
Posted by Ozymandias on Monday, July 28, 2014 (23:01:30)

Last year, when we asked readers to submit opinion poetry, we were overwhelmed. More than 1,500 poets answered the call, many with multiple entries. The poems we received dealt with every issue of the day, including the war on terror, the economy, the nanny state, student debt and the inability of so many politicians to keep their pants zipped. After reading more than 5,000 poems, we were exhausted. But we were so happy with the end result that we've decided to do it all over again.Link!

News in Poetry Pashtun poets struggle to hold on to craft
Posted by Ozymandias on Monday, July 28, 2014 (23:00:04)

BANNU: For more than five centuries, poets in remote northwestern Pakistan have recited verses about the area’s mountainous scenery, their tribal culture and love. That all changed as Islamist militants tightened their hold on Pakistan’s tribal regions after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. The Taliban and its allies quickly crushed the poets’ words and spirits. They were warned not to write phrases that referred to women or serenity and instead ordered to compose jihadist messages of war, brutality and conformity. Link!
