When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.–Ben Harper (b. 1969)
This quote is in honor of the new ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative at the Skeptic’s Kaddish. I’m excited to share this with you!
Please note: ‘Poetry Partners’ is not merely about publishing guest poetry; it’s about seeding creative partnerships.
In addition to providing a platform for guest writers, I will be composing and publishing personal poems inspired by each featured piece. These poetic responses may take any form and may borrow imagery or language from featured guest poems.
Guest poems and their respective response poems will be published as one, with guest poems directly above their responses, with an eye to potential further collaborations.
New guest poets will be featured every week.
Let’s make poetry!
