Recently, we posted four new mp3 projects by emerging poets. The concept of emerging has been fodder for debate lately, so we thought we'd ask ourselves what it means to One Pause. Not unlike the images that the word conjurs up, we see an emerging poet as one who is coming forward, revealing herself to her peers and to her audience. In the same way, the literary world is opening up to her. Whether an emerging poet has a book, a handful of publications, or a healthy presence in the literary community, these are poets about whom we're excited, and for whom we see good things on the horizon.
Rochelle Hurt's book, The Rusted City, was the winner of the 2012 Marie Alexander Open Reading period, and was released this year by White Pine Press. Regina DiPerna has work forthcoming from The Boston Review, ReDivider, The Cincinnati Review, and was just named a finalist for the Saturnalia Book Prize. Anna B. Sutton received a James Merrill fellowship from the Vermont Studio Center and was offered a spot this summer at Tin House Writers' Workshop and the Hambidge Center for Creative Arts and Sciences. Gabriella R. Tallmadge's poetry has appeared in Sou'wester, Salamander, Devil's Lake, and The Collagist, and is forthcoming from even more wonderful journals.
So, as you can see, these are writers to keep your eyes on. We surely will.
