Sideshow: Even More Technology & Poetry

An interview with Dave Bonta, Big Tent Poetry Sideshow Barker

Another one of our sideshow barkers, Dave Bonta, is currently featured in 10 questions: poetry & technology (an interview series by Nic Sebastian at Very Like a Whale).

“… most of all, I like seeing the generosity with which online poets and other writers link to each other, comment on each other’s work, workshop each other’s poems (the internet is great for that), and form new and I think more resilient networks than we’ve seen in a very long time, especially here in the U.S. where the poetry world is so factionalized.”

One of the neat things about this series at Very Like a Whale is that a number of our Sideshow Barkers are included, as well as other folks we read regularly. Both Ren Powell and January O’Neil have been featured. Be sure to read the entire series.

Check our About page for a list of other Sideshow Barkers, friends of Big Tent Poetry who are generous enough to share with us their columns, interviews and reviews. There is no set schedule for these appearances; willy-nilly is a symptom of creative genius!
