Discovering the Relevance of Words
If you’re a constant reader (channeling my inner-SK here) of The Poetry Question, you have probably noticed a dip in content lately.
First it was due to summer, then it was due to …
Personally, I have been struggling with what type of content to write. Maybe I need to shut and write. Words are words are words. “Strike the keys!”*
Our mission is vague, “discovering the relevance of words…”, but opens the door to many discussions.
However, with whom are we having this discussion?
Are we writing for reluctant high school poets and readers? Are we writing for the easy-chair-and-a-tome crowd?
The impetus for the page came out of a high school student’s comment, “Man, Poetry ain’t even relevant anymore” and Margolin spamming every writer, comedian, poet, rapper, actor he could find on Twitter asking for their 140 about Poetry’s place in today’s society… but where is it now?
Are we that tv show that gets cancelled after the first season because it didn’t know its demographic?
If you are a visitor to this site, whether it is your first time or you come here on the reg, please donate thirty seconds out of your life to comment your demographic (as much or little detail as you want pertaining to age, race, gender, education, how often you visit, opinions on poetry, and the written word)
QOTD – Who are you? (literally)
