Like a balm for worn souls, we are thankful that our global quarantine coincides with National Poetry Month! Alya Howe, founder of The Poetry Market and co-creator of Poets on Purpose, is beginning a new initiative on KDNK called "AntiViral." Her first collaborators are Rosemerry Wahtolla Trommer and Stefano Da Fre, each sharing original poetry inspired by our collective yet personal predicament.
In collaboration with Aspen Words and The Poetry Market, KDNK hosted a poetry slam on December 13, 2019. Previewing the event, Raleigh Burleigh spoke with Ellie Scott of Aspen Words, organizer Alya Howe, and poets Jo Altmaier and Matt Roeser. Audio from the slam will be aired on Decemeber 28 at 10pm.
