courses using our stuff

University of Pennsylvania: PENNsound, pennsound and Kelly Writers House webcasts. A stellar project at Penn, PENNsound is “committed to producing new audio recordings and preserving existing audio archives.” Here you can listen to readings from 1950s to today and often find great extras and links to other exciting websites. You can also link through to the Kelly Writers House webcasts at and watch readings and craft talks with major contemporary poets and writers.

The above is from a course syllabus for a seminar on contemporary American poetry being offered this fall at SUNY Fredonia - taught by Natalie Gerber who is in her own right a wonderful scholar-critic of modern poetic prosody. (Here's a short bio.)
