Poetry as Theatre

Poetry is Dead is launching their Drama issue! Enjoy readings that explore the intersection of poetry and theatre: voice, character, a mimetic stylizing of reality, poetry that acknowledges its audience, uses sleight of hand to conjure time and space, plays with authenticity and artifice, and demands to be seen as well as heard. With guest editors Marita Dachsel and Nancy Lee and featuring readings by contributors Cristina Holman, Danielle Janess, Carolyn Nakagawa, Ann-Bernice Thomas, and Natasha Gauthier.
