News in Poetry Read poetry if you write poetry
Posted by Ozymandias on Saturday, September 20, 2014 (01:33:26)

In order to comprehend the art of poetry, a person needs to study it. Just as a painter studies the old masters and the newest techniques, a poet must do the same. Poetry has been around as long as there has been writing. You can read poems that are over a thousand years old. You can also read poems that were posted to a website moments before. The key is to read, and to study. Get to know the poetry that is around you.Link!

News in Poetry Celebrating the Works of 104-year-old Poet Peggy Freydberg
Posted by LostInTranslation on Friday, September 19, 2014 (11:50:55)

There is a standard formula for poetry readings. The poet stands at the front of the room holding a copy of a recent book and reads aloud, allowing the audience to take in the rhythms and structures of each work. Less common is a reading that is as much a celebration of the poet as of the poems. Yet that was what took place Tuesday afternoon in Chilmark, as Chilmark Writing Workshop founder Nancy Aronie hosted more than 25 people for a reading of poetry by Peggy Freydberg. Mrs. Freydberg, who is 106, was the guest of honor. CLICK HERE for full story!
