Today is Poetry at Work Day 2018. Most poets have day jobs, because poetry isn’t that lucrative a profession. But poetry is inherent in all work.
As we continue to get ready for the 2015 Take Your Poet to Work Day Celebration, this week we welcome Maya Angelou to our collection of ready-for-work poets.
Maya Angelou was an unlikely candidate for literary success. But she reinvented herself, more than once.
Poet Scott Edward Anderson pays homage to both his fiance and Maya Angelou by pairing the poem “Phenomenal Woman” with the comfort food of a Spoon Roast.
