Inside The Blanket Fort - Episode 124 (4/27/23)

Journey back Inside The Blanket Fort this week as we continue to celebrate National Poetry Month, we’ve been diving into Kara Dorris’s Writing the Self-Elegy: The Past is Not Disappearing Ink, which officially releases from SIU Press on May 16th. We’ve heard poetry readings, writing prompts, and thoughts on what makes a self-elegy, the honest, aching, and intimate poetic form the anthology spotlights.

Anne Kaier, poet and contributor to Writing the Self-Elegy: The Past Is Not Disappearing Ink, prepared a reading of one of her poems from the anthology, and she also shared some of her thoughts about writing with us as well as a prompt to inspire our listeners interested in writing their own poems!
