The host of The Troy Poetry Mission R.M. Engelhardt let’s his views & thoughts be known on the recent false accusations against the Nation magazine and a young but well meaning poet who simply wrote a poem in regards to the plight of homelessness in America.
Writing and poetry is all about characters, narrative and advocating for the rights & beliefs of all, not just some writers and the meaning of 21st century poetry started a very long time ago which has apparently become “lost in translation” to many journalists and magazines riding the wave of popularity. Poetry has never died. Never will.
On Wednesday November 29th The Troy Poetry Mission Returns to O’Brien’s Public House With Our Featured Poet Rebecca Schumejda & An Open Mic For Poets & The Spoken Word Hosted By R.M. Engelhardt and James H Duncan.
