I am blown away by what Poetry Storehouse contributors have pulled together during the three weeks or so since our last ‘new additions’ update. In addition to featuring poems from six new poets in this update, the Storehouse has collected 23 new video remixes, two new still image remixes, and 27 new audio recordings by seven volunteer readers in that time. And that doesn’t count the waves made by Storehouse remixes elsewhere on the web. Read the details in today’s ‘new additions’ update. There was so much material for this update, that for the first time the update post needed a user-friendly clickable table of contents up top.
I made a quick analysis of the diverse group of artists responsible for all this amazing collaborative work – that is, those specifically named in this update for having contributed in some capacity. There are 40 names in total – 23 poets, 11 video remixers and 6 volunteer readers. And some of those contribute to the Storehouse in double roles or more, as indicated below. How’s that for an amazing artistic community?
I am truly humbled and amazed at all the creative energy that is constantly changing hands and forms at the Poetry Storehouse and offer warmest thanks to our contributors, viewers and listeners for making it all possible.
