“How to Survive a Hotel Fire” by Veronica Wong


In how to survive a hotel fire, the delightful debut from New York poet Angela Veronica Wong (a 2011 winner of the esteemed PSA Chapbook Fellowship), the first thing you might notice is the author’s attention to structure and form. Of the book’s six sections, the first and last are each comprised of a single poem, while the middle sections each shift from form to form.
