Day 17: Poetry in Performance

A sixth-grade field trip to a high school performance of Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart", complete with sound effects, showed me words could jump off the page. In moving from The Lineup print chapbook series to a website, I took advantage of the Web's sound and video capacity to present poetry in ways I couldn't in print. Most weeks, I create videos incorporating poets' or performers' voices, but The 5-2 is also open to videos by the poets themselves.

For Day 17 of 30 Days of The 5-2, check out The 5-2's best contributed videos, by Jackie Sheeler and Lola Koundakjian.
