Alice Quinn, Carol Muske Dukes, Tommy Orange, Rex Wilder, & Ron Koertge present Together in a “Sudden Strangeness: America’s Poets Respond to the Pandemic”

As the novel coronavirus and its devastating effects began to spread in the United States and around the world, Alice Quinn reached out to poets across the country to see if, and what, they were writing under quarantine. Moved and galvanized by the response, the onetime New Yorker poetry editor and recent former director of the Poetry Society of America began collecting the poems arriving in her inbox, assembling this various, intimate, and intricate portrait of our suddenly altered reality.
