Links to some really interesting poetry-related stuff circulating on the web this week:

  • “The Writing Class” by Jaswinder Bolina, a long but provocative essay on the relationship between poetry and privilege, and a peek into the darkness that lies behind the curtain of the AWP (Association of Writers and Writers’ Programs, the MLA of creative writers)
  • An article from the Guardian about the Poetry Brothel in NYC, which is banking on the sensual delights of poetry read out loud
  • And another approach to making poetry more hip–“Bitches in Bookshops,” a Jay-Z/Kanye parody celebrating bookishness

Enjoy!
