Poetry Out Loud



"Poetry Out Loud" was a series of ten LPs released between 1969 and 1977 as a magazine of oral poetry. The driving forces behind Poetry Out Loud were two couples: Peter and Patricia B McGarry (Harleman), from Topeka, Kansas, and Klyd and Linda Watkins, from Nashville; this is word-as-sound art, a heavy trip. On May 4th, 2012, ISSUE Project Room presented a rare live performance with the Watkins, along with special guests Tom Carter, Keith Connolly and Dave Nuss. The set starts with an opening instrumental track by Messages. Part of ISSUE's "Littoral" series, the event celebrated Poetry Out Loud's 2012 re-release by De Stijl records.

Established in 2006, ISSUE's Littoral program is a free public reading series spotlighting writers experimenting with new forms and approaches to poetry, fiction, and essays. Responding to a declining network of support for innovative experimental literature outside academic institutions, Littoral serves as a central hub for fostering cutting-edge writers, publishers, and literary journals.
