PoetryPolitic- The Beginning or the End in 50 Days 

A new 50-day blog called PoetryPolitic has been launched from Wave Books, posting from today until the November election. In this last stretch to either doom or a brief deep breath, this blog brings us politics/poetry news in all its intersections.

Wave says, "PoetryPolitic will be offering a spectrum of critical and imaginative thinking, through poems, audio and video recordings, essays, interviews and manifestos, by which we -- as citizens and as readers -- might be brought into a field of greater and more urgent awareness. The work on PoetryPolitic represents the ways in which poetry might respond to the complexity of the political moment, enacting and catalyzing the thinking and conversations necessary towards that response."
