Dear Poets, Can you suggest a poem to help me start moving forward? Dear Poets, Is there a poem that captures the slow melancholy of a rainy day? Dear Poets, Is there a poem that holds all the hope I hold for the future? Dear Poets, I’m queer, I’m queer, I’m so queer and so closeted. Help.
In The Paris Review's beloved online column Poetry Rx, readers write in with a specific emotion or problem, and our resident poets—Sarah Kay, Kaveh Akbar, and Claire Schwartz—take turns prescribing the perfect poem to match. On June 8 at 4 P.M., these star poets will take the stage and fix you with poetry, LIVE at the Bell House.
Buy your tickets and then submit your own question to email@example.com — there's a good chance your question will be chosen the night of the event! (All submissions will be anonymous.)
