Make It True meets Medusario Anthology

Cover of the bilingual poetry anthology Make it True meets MedusarioMake It True meets Medusario is a bilingual anthology was spawned by two previous anthologies and combined into one to initiate a dialog between Spanish language poets of the neo-barroco school, as organized by José Kozer and poets from the Cascadia bioregion, as organized by Paul E Nelson and Thomas Walton.

From the books’ introduction by Matthew Trease, the book is an effort to:

bring together poets from divergent languages, cultures, and aesthetics to create a… conversation… a fertile meeting place for ongoing ideas about poetry – something messy that might trouble the too-easy academic labels and the subsequent segregation those aesthetic and political divisions caused within the larger, global poetry community.

Poets included in the book from the neo-barroco (Medusario) side are: Carmen Berenguer, Marosa Di Giorgio, Roberto Echavarren, Eduardo Espina, Reynaldo Jiménez, Tamara Kamenszain, José Kozer, Pedro Marqués de Armas, Maurizio Medo, Soleida Ríos, Roger Santiváñez and Raúl Zurita. Cascadians (Make It True) include Stephen Collis, Elizabeth Cooperman, Sarah de Leeuw, Claudia Castro Luna, Nadine Maestas, Peter Munro, Paul E Nelson, John Olson, Shin Yu Pai, Clea Roberts, Cedar Sigo, Matthew Trease and Thomas Walton.

The book is to be launched May 2019, in Anacortes, Washington, at the Cascadia Poetry Festival and published by Pleasure Boat Studios. Festival Gold Passes go on sale March 9.
