The Poetry Foundation, which a few years ago tried to incarcerate a number of peaceful, civil disobedient poet-protesters at its new $23 million edifice (see conversation between Linh Dinh and Brooks Johnson, with letter from J.H. Prynne in our Documents section) has just announced its list of paid Bloggers for National Poetry Month. Among them are Joshua Clover and Chris Chen (of the Commune Group), Lucas de Lima (lead figure of the Mongrel Coalition Against Gringpo), and Daniel Borzutzky (translator of Raul Zurita, the CADA poet and activist who praised the PF protestors in a feature article in one of Chile’s largest newspapers).
We just thought we’d mention this fascinating fact.
