“ Poetry is ordinary language raised to the Nth power. Poetry is boned with ideas, nerved and blooded with emotions, all held together by the delicate, tough skin of words. ” — Paul Engle, from an article in The New York Times.
Many people’s experience with poetry brings to mind stressful classroom experiences, grasping for rhyming words and counting syllables. But, there are a group of those that poetry calls out to. There is a special revere for the classics and perhaps most notably, recently, there is a special call for the modern as well. Images of Amanda Goreman and Shane Koyczan easily float through the mind as their powerful words lead you to faith, thoughtfulness, caution and love.
We invite you to consider sharing poetry you’ve written or perhaps a favorite piece by recording your reading of it. We hope to culminate a collection that speaks to the soul of Knox’s community. Please use the CONTACT US form to let us know when you like to schedule a COVID safe recording session with a Knox Technician utilizing the amazing acoustics of the sanctuary, and our brand new recording equipment.
