Daily Distraction: Read about all of the Columbus poets we could still locate features on
Celebrate National Poetry Month by reading more about our local scribes
With April being National Poetry Month, I thought it would be a good time to compile as many Alive features on the city's poets as I could scrounge up, a task made slightly more difficult by our website being in the midst of a months-long migration to a new system. (I mean, have you tried using the search tool on columbusalive.com lately?)
Despite the hurdles, I managed to round up features on 21 poets, which gives you almost one a day to read over the remainder of the month
Furthermore, if you've ever had an itch to write poetry but have been looking for that extra nudge, or at least a little bit of wisdom to set you on your way, then revisit this January Other Columbus column, in which Scott Woods offers his advice on how to become a pandemic poet.
Absorb his words and maybe you can one day join the ranks of the writers below.
