I’d say stickiness, a kind of memorability....You hear it and a day later some of it is still there in your brain. I think a poem is “good” if it's memorable, reciteable, and it’s accessible. There are many good poems out there you don't get a chance to see or hear and now Poetry Everywhere is giving people just that opportunity." - Garrison Keillor With selections ranging from Billy Collins and Ted Kooser to Lucille Clifton, Maxine Kumin, and Marilyn Chin, the POETRY EVERYWHERE app is a fresh take on poetry. Enjoy a broad spectrum of voices and gain an even deeper appreciation of this timeless art form. About the Project: WGBH (wgbh.org) and David Grubin Productions, in association with the Poetry Foundation, created this project to reach new audiences with the power of great poetry, and to increase poetry’s presence on television and the Web.
