The Public Poetry Project


The PUBLIC POETRY PROJECT (PPP) seeks to move away from a model of poetics reliant upon a notion of the solitary, laboring, sometimes melancholic poet, alone in her/his garret; to one of an interactive, socially constructed and conscious poetics based upon and in human connection and site specificity. PPP concerns itself with a sense of the "in-between"--spaces which resist neat classification, and "the collaborative"--writing, which itself acts as a bridge between its creators, between its creators and audience(s).
