30/30 Poetic Vision: Day 22

30 30 Poetic Vision copy

Inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets in 1996, National Poetry Month is now held every April, when schools, publishers, libraries, booksellers, and poets throughout the United States band together to celebrate poetry and its vital place in American culture. Thousands of organizations participate through readings, festivals, book displays, workshops, and other events.

In honor of this month, Naropa’s Jack Kerouac School is launching its first annual 30/30 Poetic Vision, featuring daily poems by JKS students, staff, and faculty. Our community members were asked to contemplate and engage with text as visual and audio mediums. What forms emerge in the 21st Century? How has technology changed the way we view, perform, and transmit poetry? These are a few of the questions that will be explored over the next thirty days. We hope you’ll join us on this journey.

Jack Kerouac School. WRITING THINKING BEING. The experiment continues…
