You Can’t Kill a Poet is a poetry series that features the work of queer and trans poets here in Philadelphia. I want to share with you event tape from the You Can’t Kill a Poet Five year anniversary show. And because it’s event tape it’s pretty long but totally worth it if you stick around until the end. Maybe put it on while you’re having a quiet night at home and need some literary inspiration. There are 8 amazing poets to hear from, a few of which I talked to get more insight into their poetry practices and how their poems come to life.
