approaching the poem

December 5, 2016

Poetry

If you’re looking for ideas about reading or discussing poetry — for yourself or for someone you’d like to encourage — “How to Read and Talk About Poetry” by Jessica Flynn is a good place to start. The author spoke with three poets and teachers: Rachel Brumbach (English teacher at McCaskey High School in Lancaster, Pennsylvania); Adrian Matejka (Ruth Lilly Professor/Poet-in-Residence at Indiana University; mostly recently the author of The Big Smoke); and Tyler Meier (executive director of the Poetry Center at the University of Arizona) and the resulting conversation is posted on the National Endowment for the Arts blog.
