Check Out This Big Bridge Anthology I Edited

Months ago Michael Rothenberg and I came up with the idea of collecting poems that work equally well on the page as well as the stage. We decided to call this online anthology from Big Bridge, “Fusion.” Specifically we were trying to weave a tapestry of Beat Poets, Slam Poets, Black Arts Poets and Hip Hop Poets. We were looking for poets from those movements and peripheral to them, as well as poets inspired by any and all of those movements. We were working to show the similarities of these movements as well as celebrate the cultural and individual differences.

What I received, were great lyric poems. Fusion features one poet from Israel, one poet from Ireland, and one Fulbright Scholar. Fusion also fully represents the outsider arts as well, featuring a few poets that will count that as their second or third publication. They all follow Kerouac’s decree to “moan for man.”
