“Talk is a form of love. Let us talk.”
There is writing in one’s room—quiet deliberation over time, place, names. Early information: a character’s first utterance. What will she say, and how, once there is that, will she say it? Then a story emerges, and with it, the need to leave one’s room, to hear one’s voice against the sound of others.
What follows is the result of much talking and listening: our 10th issue of Podium—work from the Unterberg Poetry Center's Writing Program—poems and prose selected by our students and instructors, as well as art by Mirna Everett and Andrew Watel.
