Make it True meets Medusario

$20.00

Make It True meets Medusario brings together poets from divergent languages, cultures, and aesthetics to create a conversation a fertile meeting place for ongoing ideas about poetrysomething messy that might trouble the all too-easy academic labels and the subsequent segregation those aesthetic and political divisions cause within the larger, global poetry community.

“The poet George Stanley’s concept of Aboutism—that poems be about something—is an important notion when all else seems “to fall apart.” Poetry is the act of making a world, impossible as it is, to somehow cohere with meaning. What this anthology brings us are poets in that attempt—bold, open, and alive to say something that  beautifully translates us to a borderless world.” -Barry McKinnon, author of “In the Millennium” and “Gone South”

Please join us for the LAUNCH on May 10, 2019, 7PM at the CASCADIA POETRY FESTIVAL in ANACORTES, WA. The cherry on top, a few PBS poets to follow.
