PSA Asks. Shenoda, Parker, Reyes and Ali Respond.

 thumbnailFour BOA authors - Kazim Ali, Matthew Shenoda, Barbara Jane Reyes, and Alan Michael Parker - appear in the Poetry Society of America's project in which they ask the provocative question, "What's American About American Poetry?" Here's how the PSA describes the project on their website: "In November 1999, the PSA (in collaboration with Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky and the New School Writing Department) presented the festival 'What's American About American Poetry.'  In preparation for the festival, a survey with general questions about the current state of poetry in America was mailed to  poets across the country, representing a diverse range of genres, cultures, and aesthetics. Ten years later, the Poetry Society asked a new group of poets a version of those questions. Over the next few months we will be adding those answers to the archived answers from 1999." Find out how our BOA authors responded here: Kazim Ali on "What's American About American Poetry?" Matthew Shenoda on "What's American About American Poetry?" Alan Michael Parker on "What's American About American Poetry?" Barbara Jane Reyes on "What's American About American Poetry?"
