Anne Waldman Saves the Chapbook

“We didn’t wait around to be discovered. We discovered ourselves,” poet Anne Waldman told Galleycat–reviving the singular art of the poetry chapbook.

In this video interview, the celebrated poet explains what she learned about self-publishing over the course of her career. In addition to writing, Waldman co-founded of the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at Naropa Institute with Allen Ginsberg–a fitting teacher to conclude National Poetry Month.

Last week Honor Moore, editor of “Poems from the Women’s Movement,” hosted a poetry reading at Saint Peter’s Church in Manhattan–bringing together generations of renowned poets to celebrate the release of the Library of America anthology. GalleyCat interviewed a number of these poets, including Erica Jong about the lack of publishing parity and Honor Moore about how “Male Approval Desire” hobbles women.
