Savvy Verse & Wit 2014 Challenge

I just signed up to take part in a poetry reading/writing challenge at Serena M. Agusto-Cox’s amazing website, Savvy Verse & Wit.

I just may start with Viral, by Suzanne Parker (http://alicejamesbooks.org/ajb-titles/viral/). I was lucky enough to hear the writer read from this book a few weeks back and am eager to read it in depth. The poetic series tells (and explores) the story of the death of Tyler Clementi.

In terms of writing practice, which is one of the primary focuses of this blog, I am interested in Parker’s creation (and how she accomplishes this so successfully) of a multi-faceted book-length poetic narrative. Also, she dives right into the sometimes vexing project of cultural or political critique through the arts.
