It's the second episode of SAY SOMETHING, ANYTHING and this time we're in a bar. Sunny Rey, author of the book Quotes and Poems by a Nobody, sits down with Kara (and a bloody mary) to read two intimate poems (unintentionally accompanied by some raging bar music). Sunny talks about writing for herself vs. writing for other people, the internet as a tool for new writers, and the importance of accepting that what you write sucks. Like Sunny’s facebook page and check out her book on Amazon.
In the very first episode of poetry podcast "Say Something, Anything", renowned San Diego poet Chris Vannoy reads two of his beat-esque poems. He also addresses teaching poetry in the academic setting and how that can stifle creativity. His solution? Poetry in bars, open mics, performing with musicians. Chris Vannoy reads his poetry with an exuberance which parallels his belief that poetry is exciting, unexpected, and the best way to connect with an audience.Chirs Vannoy's new poetry book, available on Amazon, is Strange Summer.
