Episode 46: Page Meets Stage. Sponsored by Blue Flower Arts
(Roger Bonair-Agard, Mark Doty, Taylor Mali, Marilyn Nelson, Molly Peacock) Taylor Mali and the Bowery Poetry Club come to AWP with the acclaimed Page Meets Stage series. Spoken word poetry and written poetry have inched closer in recent years, but there is still a big gap between poets who write to be read and those who recite to be heard. Or is there? Join us as performance poets (Mali, Peacock, and Bonair-Agard) and page poets (Doty and Nelson) are paired together and go head-to-head, poem-for-poem, revealing the playful give-and-take between the page and the stage.
