Richard Long “After Being Long Gone” – One Sentence Poems:

How Iowa Flattened Literature – The Chronicle Review – The Chronicle of Higher Education

The building of the Creative Writing Workshop as a CIA funded weapon against the Commies? Gotta love it! The workshop is dead, long live the workshop!

Claudia Serea Reads at Porter Contemporary

Claudia Serea, a recent contributor to The 2River View, recently read a few poems at the Porter Contemporary in New York City. Serea, as well as two other poets, read poems related to The Price of Everything, a solo exhibit by Jeannie Barrese.

Bryan Cranston from Breaking Bad reads “Ozymandias”

2River’s a big fan of Breaking Bad and think it’s cool that the show makes use of good poetry. Here I-am-the-danger reads a poem that perhaps points to his fall.

Andrew Oerke Dies Suddenly

Andrew Oerke has died unexpectedly, though he had had some long-standing health problems from his time in Africa. His poems have appeared in The New Yorker, The New Republic, Poetry, and in numerous other magazines. In 2006, African Stiltdancer and San Miguel de Allende were published jointly by Swan Books and the UN Society for Writers and Artists. They have received the United Nations Literature Award. His most recent book, Never Seek to Tell Thy Love, was published in 2010. Look for two of his newer unpublished poems in the upcoming summer issue of 2RV.
