Featured Poet: Amie Whittemore

0

Imagine the wildly imaginative leaps of Bob Hicok, the finely crafted lyricism of Charles Wright, and the sardonic wit of Sharon Olds and Anne Sexton. Now, imagine someone exhibiting all these poetic talents—and more—at the same time. If that sounds impossible, it’s my pleasure to prove you wrong with this month’s Featured Poet, Amie Whittemore. Rarely do you find a contemporary poet who can pull off this many magic tricks at one time. Then again, rarely are any of us privileged to read work like this. Enjoy!
