Yet Another Poet’s New Year’s Resolution: Read your poems out loud for someone else

By January 3, 2014

Follow me on:

Whether your audience is family and friends at home, your local writing group or open reading, or a larger public, your poems won’t come to life until you’ve put them in people’s ears. If this is your resolution for 2014 and you’re getting ready for a public reading, run through The Barbaric Yawp: How to give a good reading of your poems, adapted from our friend Gary Mex Glazner’s book How To Make a Living as a Poet (Soft Skull Press, 2005).

And after your reading, be sure to come back and tell us how you did!
