Poetry Karaoke

A red neon Karaoke signCelebrate National Poetry Month by performing your favorite poem written by someone else. It can be a classic that everyone knows or some little known gem you’d like to introduce to the world. You can do a straightforward reading or you can the poem into a performance. It just needs to be around five minutes or less of performance time and written by someone else. (That’s what makes it karaoke.)

Wyn Cooper, Mars Poetica

In Mars Poetica, Wyn Cooper explores the conscious and unconscious ways we comprehend both the world around us and the one inside. From subjects like fashion, film, music, and painting, to more solemn and universal themes such as desire, anxiety, and loss, Cooper shows how such disparate topics can mirror each other in ways that help us to illuminate our lives.

Martha Collins & Kevin Prufer, Into English

Into English allows readers an extraordinary opportunity to experience the process and artistry of translating poetry. Editors Martha Collins and Kevin Prufer invited twenty-five contributors, all of them translators and most of them also poets, to select one poem in another language and three English translations of it, and then to provide an essay about the challenges and rewards of translating it. This anthology offers the original poem and the translations side by side, so readers can compare the translations for themselves.

Ben Purkert & Don Wellman

How does it feel to lose your planet, your lover, yourself? Ben Purkert's debut collection, For the Love of Endings, tests what connects us to this earth and to each other. His brilliantly crafted poems examine "the gap / between the world & how / people paint it: dark, distant, there / for the taking." He makes us look at our disintegrating world head on and see what we've done to it, and what it has done to us.

Charles Coe & Marge Piercy

No relationship is more personal, yet universal, than that of parent and child. These richly detailed poems connect readers with their own experiences in that most fundamental of relationships, and are poignant reminders that the lives of those closest to us sometimes offer the deepest mysteries.
