Website Wonders: Berkeley Lunch Poems (YouTube Series)

4 Dec

My poetry professor actually showed me this series on YouTube, and I thought I would share it with you all.

If you like poetry, this is fantastic, because you can listen to famous poets talk about their works while also reading their pieces aloud–for free.

I found a couple I really enjoyed, which are below, but you can pick and choose, explore the world of poetry. Even if you are a fiction writing, I really recommend studying poetry and/or screenwriting, because it expands your skills and redefines your writing passion in ways you might not expect.

So instead of listening to Pandora or Itunes today, take a moment and try Berkeley Lunch poems out:

Joanne Kyger, author of God Never Dies, The Distressed Look, and Again.

Robin Blaser, author of The Holy Forest: Collected Poems of Robin Blaser

Jessica Fisher, author of Frail-Craft.

    I went to a few Berkeley Lunch Poems when I was an English undergrad. Very interesting! I’m so glad they made a web series out of it for more people to enjoy
