SloPo Is Born

Check out "Possum Ego" (Dale Smith's blog - see link below right). He's been on a fine tear recently about "Slow Poetry." He even calls it "SloPo" and calls it a movement. I hope so. Anyway, check it out.

Joseph--thanks for the shout-out here. I also wanted to say how useful your book, Poetry and the Public, was in helping me first start thinking about slow poetry (it's also helping me figure out arguments in my dissertation about poetry's value to a public audience).

Best wishes,

Thanks for the kind words, Dale. Hope the journal stops playing possum after dissertation hell is through. I'd be interested in hearing about your diss.
