National Poetry Month

C21 Fellow, Rebecca Dunham

There have been many local events to celebrate National Poetry Month in Milwaukee.  Here at C21, we’re celebrating the work of C21 fellow, Rebecca Dunham.  During her time at the center, she’s conducting research for a book-length poetic sequence entitled “Black Horizon: A Documentary in Verse” in which she will explore the intersection of global environmental events, specifically the BP oil spill, and poetry as a documentary form.

The Rumpus recently published “Mnemosyne to the Poet,” a poem from this project.  “Morning: Joplin, MO,” another poem from the project, appeared online this fall.
