New Poetry From Widener Professor Ken Pobo

September 29, 2011

Ken Pobo, a Widener faculty member since 1987, has been prolific in 2011, publishing four chapbooks in just one year.  The books are Ice and Gaywings, winner of the qarrtsiluni 2011 chapbook contestCloser Walks, published by Thunderclap Press;  Tiny Torn Maps, a collection of “tweet fiction” published by Deadly Chaps; and Contralto Crows, from Green Fuse Press.

You can read a poem from Contralto Crows titled “Thoreau” on the website ForPoetry, and view the video below created from his poem, “Tom Kessler, Stockton Island, 1887,” a selection from Ice and Gaywings (the video features Pobo reading the poem).  You also may remember that two years ago Widener Magazine published his poem “Frank and Trina Bowl”  from his 2009 collection, Trina and the Sky, and that he was featured in the spring 2010 issue of the magazine.
