Our friend Bill Cohen writes to tell us he's compiling the fifth installment of his popular “The Tattooed Poets Project.” Every year since 2009 during National Poetry Month (April), Bill features poets who share their tattoos and the stories behind them. As a bonus, he includes a generous sampling of the poet’s work complete with links and such.
You can be part of this year's line-up and by doing so you'll join the ranks of Joy Harjo, Kim Addonizio, Brendan Constantine, Eileen Myles, and Noelle Kocot. If you sport ink, please contact Bill at Tattoosday@gmail.com.Find the index of 120+ poets who have participated The Tattooed Poets Project here.
Thanks Bill for sharing this great project with us.
