When a poet voices primarily for performance, publishing sparsely, then leaves the spoken-word scene it can be difficult for subsequent generations to recover and appreciate that voice; what was cutting when delivered can sound blunt from the perimeter of decades. Commentary is prompted then sustained by an evidential body of work once the live performance is over.
ModPo 2017 — our next intensive ten-week “symposium mode” — will begin on Saturday, September 9, 2017. Please share with your friends and encourage them to enroll. Enrolling in ModPo now or any time means you have access to everything now, but it also means you’ll be ready to do the ten-week intensive course all together starting in September. If you are and were already enrolled, you needn’t do anything to stay enrolled for our ten-week September–November session.
