Welcome to Lightbox Poetry

In our April issue, we kick off National Poetry Month with fascinating conversations with Tarfia Faizullah, author of Seam, and Phillip B. Williams, author of Thief in the Interior, about what constitutes a poem of witness, about the ethics of writing, and about the formal and philosophical work of transforming our world into words.

In each of our features, we provide a full range of classroom materials in a portfolio beneath the interview:

  • Links to poems
  • Discussion questions
  • In-class activities
  • Writing prompts
  • Relevant links about our featured poets

We hope you will find these materials useful as you plan your classes or delve into your own poetic interests.

If you’re interested in receiving an email when we launch our new issues, please subscribe to our monthly newsletter.

Thanks, and happy reading!
