Even as the world becomes smaller, it just seems like we’re isolating ourselves a lot more. We distract our time away from having face-to-face conversations in order to answer a text, an email, or retweet something ridiculous. #WhyDidIDoThat.
Poetry Teachers NYC is a strong advocate of COLLABORATION. Adding a new VOICE to your poem could breathe a lot of life and vigor into the poetic space. Think about it like a recipe. You want to have LAYERS of FLAVOR, so working with another poet could be the ingredient you needed. Or, push the boundaries of COLLABORATION even further and work with a poet in a another city! Use technology to your advantage. Blur those borders. Build bridges with language. Re-energize your poetics by building with other poets.
If you collaborate with another poet, PTNYC would love to see, hear, and/or read your work. Send us your collaboration with a short explanation of the process, bios of the poets, and pictures of the poets, and maybe your work will be FEATURED on our Blog.
