Every week we bring you a One Minute Poem by a poet with a recently published collection.
Each poem clocks in at under one minute, and we post it on our freshly minted YouTube channel. We also carry it on our social media platforms: Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. Click on the thumbnail poster below for a link to each poet’s reading on YouTube!
