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

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 Review: Rehema McNeil, 'Davu'
Posted by Ozymandias on Tuesday, October 21, 2014 (08:28:16)

Despite having only recently turned her attention to hip-hop, Rehema McNeil has been a mouthpiece for the streets for more than a minute. For the last few years, the Indianapolis native has performed across the Midwest as a slam poet, tweaking her tongue and whetting her words as a storyteller. With a mind for change and a strong self identity, taking her voice to rap music –– America's most popular and influential form of street poetry–– holds as the logical next step for McNeil. Link!
