Inklette Magazine X NYC Poetry Festival 2021

Inklette Magazine hosted a reading at the 2021 NYC Poetry Festival's on July 25 at Colonel's Row, Governors Island. The NYC Poetry Festival is a project of The Poetry Society of New York and is hosted every year during the last weekend of July on Governors Island. After being cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the festival was held this year and brought together poets, artists, journals, presses, literary and arts organizations.

The poetry readings on behalf of Inklette Magazine were delivered by Devanshi Khetarpal (Founder and Editor-in-Chief) and Maria Prudente (former contributor and Prose Editor).

The video was recorded by Ian Gittler.

We would like to extend a special thanks to the audience, participants, Maria Prudente, Ian Gittler, Poetry Society of New York and the NYC Poetry Festival, and Matthew Baker.

Aesthetic Choices Are Political Choices: An Interview with Meena Kandasamy - Asymptote Blog

We are excited to see Meena Kandasamy take on the role of a #translator, translating Salma's 2016 novel, 'Manaamiyangal' from #Tamil into #English as 'Women Dreaming.'
.
She tells Torsa Ghosal in Asymptote:
"Of course, I believe that the translator does not exist to override the author’s voice or rob them of their individuality... In terms of political translations, it is an inevitable necessity to stand up and say why this work is being undertaken, how it speaks to the present times, and why the work—and the ideas within it—require a wider audience, wider implementation. In that sense you are more than a translator—you become a fervent campaigner."

Ums, likes and y’knows get no respect – but they’re vital to conversation | Aeon Videos

Here's a short (and cute!) animated TED-Ed video on Aeon that defends hesitancy, fillers, pauses, loops in speech.
.
Of course, we think that all writing which 'speaks' to us is centered around the constant revisions and reworking of vital hesitancies and pauses. :)

‘Why Loiter?’ Ten years have passed since the seminal book on women alone in cities was published

Loitering, wandering, journeying are at the heart of stories. Not being able to do that with safety and freedom is an encroachment on our voices, identities, bodies as writers.

Leslie Kern in 'Feminist City' (Verso Books) writes that a 'flâneuse' is rarely ever imagined or implicit. We follow that thought with Anandi Mishra's piece on walking in India's cities on
Scroll, on re-reading one of our favorite books:

Poetry is more than comfort in times like these. It is a space to inhabit, transcend the moment no matter how briefly. Here are some lines from Daniel Borzutzky's 'Day #1113' in The Brooklyn Rail that are helping us today, allowing us to reflect and grieve as we read the news from India:

"And you feel them
Like fat or hair or dead skin on your body
And there is the irritating hum of time and death
And the living who are dying of so much living
Of so much time and death"
.
https://brooklynrail.org/2021/04/poetry/three-421

Take care, everyone. Read #poetry. Take your broken hearts and make them into art.

Daniel Borzutzky is a poet and translator who lives in Chicago. His most recent book is Written After a Massacre in the Year 2018 (Coffee House Press, 2021). His 2016 collection, The Performance of Becoming Human won the National Book Award. Lake Michigan (2018) was a finalist for the Griffin Intern...

An honor to be published in Inklette's 10th issue. I wrote this poem in March, when we first felt the effects of COVID-19 on our world. How it felt like everything was crumbling around us. In that moment of despair I turned to the Psalms. No one laments particularly like David. I hope you find a glimmer of hope in these words, a poem based off of Psalm 102, and/or my voice recording! https://inklettemagazine.com/2020/06/15/a-bird-alone-cassandra_hsiao/
