Lyric Nation goes live! (Not live)
The Nation has a new online feature entitled “Lyric Nation,” which presents poets reading their own work. So far they’ve archived terrific readings by Nathaniel Mackey, Jennifer Moxley, and Peter Gizzi. The notable thing about the readings is that they’re not live, but instead groove on that intimate, home-recorded, Garageband vibe. The Nation takes it to the woodshed. Nice.
