Podium: Issue 10

“Talk is a form of love. Let us talk.”
Zukofsky

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.

Enjoy!
