Free Copy of The Strangest of Theatres: Poets Writing Across Borders from the Poetry Foundation to You

The Poetry Foundation is offering free downloads of The Strangest of Theatres: Poets Writing Across Borders. And you can download it right here.

This anthology contains new essays from Naomi Shihab Nye, Kazim Ali, Yusef Komunyakaa, and many other poets. A roundtable discussion on how to travel overseas via grants, programs, and true creativity includes stories from Elizabeth Austen, Derek Burleson, and Katherine Whitcomb. Finally, reprinted pieces from Elizabeth Bishop, Carolyn Forche, and W.S. Merwin make this a book you need to own --- if not in paperback or hard copy --- at least in pdf format.

Did I mention it's completely free?

Edited by Catherine Barnett, Jared Hawkley, Brian Turner, and me.


  1. I purchased a copy of this book and have been enjoying reading it. I know I will return again to a number of the essays. It's a wonderful collection.

  2. Thanks, Maureen! I'm so glad you're enjoying it. I love the look of the book itself --- the retro image and colors. Please share this information with others you think would benefit from the essays and information.

    1. May you enjoy! Aimee has a small piece in the round table and Brian's intro is fun. I'm fond of the Bishop....well, much of what we chose for the .450 pages!
