Tonight, 60 minutes (CBS 7pm Eastern, 6pm Central) will include a segment on the new poetry movement. It includes footage shot at the 1999 National Poetry Slam (Chicago this past August). Slam founder Marc Smith will be interviewed by Morley Saffer. And U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky is also interviewed.
And another note on the world of poetry. Dan Byrne of Australia isn’t the best web designer around but does an excellant job of collecting calls for submissions, poetry events and other goodies at Word Factory.
