Pamela

Pamela Miller’s poetry has been called “zany and powerful, hilarious and heartbreaking” (Maureen Seaton) and “like eating Pop Rocks with a champagne chaser” (former RHINO editor Kathleen Kirk). She has published four books of poems, most recently Miss Unthinkable (Mayapple Press, 2013). Her other collections include Recipe for Disaster (Mayapple Press) and Mysterious Coleslaw (Ridgeway Press). She has won three Illinois Arts Council Literary Awards, and her work has appeared in many magazines and anthologies, including The Paris Review, Pudding, Wicked Alice, The MacGuffin, blossombones, Poetry Super Highway, Concho River Review, OVS, Free Lunch, After Hours, The Great American Poetry Show 2, and How to Read a Poem.

TOPIC: Funny Poetry Don’t Get No Respect … Or Do It? Humorous poetry is often dismissed by the poetry establishment as lightweight or “not real poetry.” Yet some of today’s most respected poets—such as Ron Padgett, James Tate, Russell Edson, Dean Young, and former U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins—have made wit and comedy the foundation of their work. And who says poetry has to be serious all the time? We’ll explore—and get a good laugh from—some of the most effective ways humor can be used in poetry, including parodies, absurdism, nonsense poems, poems that use humor to make serious statements, and poems that aren’t afraid to be … well, downright silly.

Bring 17 or more copies (2 page limit) of a poem you want critiqued.  *$5 – $10 donation appreciated.

 

This project is partially supported by grants from: Poets & Writers, the Illinois Arts Council

and The MacArthur Fund for Arts and Culture at the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation.
