The Poetry Question

Discovering the Relevance of Words

Welcome to the Team

When I came up with the idea of expanding a simple classroom assignment into a full website, and truly begin to widen the audience base, I knew that I could not do it alone. There was never a question of who I wanted to work with on this project, so I reached out to my two closest friends from college, Doran Simmons and J. Gabriel Allan, and told them that I they had no choice but to join The Poetry Question as full partners.

So, two English teachers, and a fish collector have started a website, a Facebook page, a twitter account, and the trek to discover the answer to The Poetry Question.

To keep everything straight…

The Poetry Question is run by Christopher Margolin, J. Gabriel Allan, and Doran Simmons. Together they will be posting, responding, and probably complaining about the current state of the world. They will let you know who posts so you don’t get confused. That being said, it won’t take you long to figure out that Doran supplies the wit and humor, J. Gabriel Allan provides the high intellect, and Margolin will provide a bit more of the dark, stream of conscious sarcasm that has gotten him in trouble for years. This could be a dangerous dynamic, but they promise to make you think about The Poetry Question.
