Leave a comment

Last week, two poets wrote posts about readings, posts which contain interesting insights about preparing for poetry readings.

Are you a shy reader or a performance artist in fishnet stockings?  Jeanine Hall Gailey ponders these questions and others here.

In this post, Sandra Beasley discusses her two readings in Charleston, South Carolina.  If you’ve ever wondered whether or not a complicated form, like a sestina, can be part of your reading, Sandra Beasley has an answer.

Happy reading!
