Poetry @ Tech
April 1, 2009 5:06 PM   Subscribe

Poetry at Tech, a poetry program at Tech University in Georgia, presents readings (on YT) by a number of fine contemporary poets. Some of my favourites: Thomas Lux (pt. 1, 2, 3),  David Kirby (pt. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5), Tony Hoagland (pt. 1, 2, 3) and Illya Kaminsky. Complete list of videos so far.

That's "Georgia Tech" to most of us.

Thanks for this: I've been watching and listening to a lot of them.

When I was younger, I used to think I was born too late, that I'd have liked life better in an earlier era.

Then I went to Georgia Tech, largely not by my own choice, and watched them add majors that were, to me, far more interesting than mine during my last year there (of seven - I took a ton of electives and was a co-op). How I wished I'd started school a few years later!

Now this. Huh.

Poetry@Tech (Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta GA) is brought to you by the School of Literature, Communication and Culture, also plays host to these fine initiatives:

The Experimental Game Lab

The James and Mary Wesley Center for New Media

Laboratory for Advanced Computing Initiatives (LACI)(emphasizing issues in the design of interactive narratives)

The BioMedia Studio

The Science Fiction Lab and Bud Foote Science Fiction Collection

and an undergrad happy to see something from his department on Metafilter!

Most people wouldn't know it but Georgia Tech actually has surprisingly good poetry and literature programs. Some of the best in the southeast I think.

Wow, That first David Kirby clip is unbearable.
