Poets.org is a free program of the Academy of American Poets. Consider making a donation in support of public poetry resources.



At this year's Poets Forum in October, the Academy will present two dynamic panels of younger poets examining imaginative uses of language, and how ideas of place and travel operate in their own work and in the poems that have influenced them. Gabrielle Calvocoressi, Matthew Dickman, and Cate Marvin will be on a panel titled "Regional Aesthetics and Sensibility in American Poems," and Cathy Park Hong, Ilya Kaminsky, and Evie Shockley will be on a panel titled "Vision and Innovation in Contemporary Poetry."

All six poets participated in a six-question interview in which they were asked about their own poetry, what books they're reading, and how they engage with social media like Facebook and Twitter. Check out the second installment of this two-part series, featuring Cathy Park Hong, Ilya Kaminsky, and Evie Shockley.

Ilya Kaminsky

Evie Shockley

"There is an emptiness on a page, a vacuum represented and magnified by the whiteness of the space, that goes until it ends, but even in ending implies an endless continuation of that blank refusal of inscription, and I begin to muss it up, to get it dirty, to bring it into contact with the world in which it exists..."
