A new poetry media resource has opened up shop on the interwebs: check out One Pause Poetry.
The mission of One Pause Poetry is to “make poetry accessible to all. We are non-academic and non–market-driven. One Pause Poetry honors diversity and quality in our selection process and is dedicated to supporting Michigan poets. We select both established and emerging writers for our series and website, with the goal of breaking down categories and camps and encouraging collaboration and innovation across poetic forms, the arts, and media.”
Poets on the site contributed recordings of three poems—one of their own, one by another poet, and one poem for children, making space for a unique and accessible archive of new and classic work everyone can enjoy.
Poets who contributed to the site include Mary Jo Bang, Joel Brouwer, Bryan Borland, Alfred Corn, Victoria Chang, Oliver de la Paz, Kathy Fagan, Sarah Messer, Kevin Simmonds, and Daniel Nathan Terry.
