Poetic Lives Online: Links by Brian Spears


You would not believe the crazy crap that’s happened the last two times I tried to do this column, but I’m back at least for this week.

For Rumpus Poetry Book Club members, save this Tuesday for our conversation with Noelle Kocot. Check your inbox for details on the time and for the link.

Amy Lawless on VIDA’s count and Eileen Myles.

Tin House talks about their numbers.

John Gallaher is making videos of the poems in Your Father On the Train of Ghosts.

Barbara Jane Reyes on messing with hegemony.

There’s still time to join the conversation Claudia Rankine began over Tony Hoagland’s poem at AWP (Click the AWP and Open Letter links at the site for details). Much has already been written, and much more will no doubt come.

Remember to follow Rumpus Poetry on twitter to keep up with all things Rumpus Poetry related. See you next week.
