Wine for a Shotgun: Slam Poetry | [Marty McConnell]

Wine for a Shotgun: Slam Poetry

Marty McConnell's collection is a finalist for the Audre Lorde and Lambda Poetry Awards. McConnell's reading and performance tie together the polarity of today's generation - diverse, interested, and continually reflecting on those who made and rasied us in comparison to how we organize our everyday life. You can hear her smile, cry, and sigh in this collection of brilliantly read poems.

Audible Editor Reviews

Marty McConnell, whose poetry hopscotches the lines between academic and businesslike, the autobiographical and the character-driven, reads from her first published collection with a voice occasionally restrained, but more often out, loud, and very, very proud. She has claimed top prize at the National Underground Poetry Individual Competition, and has had individual poems published in numerous literary journals and anthologized. Her influence on today’s performance landscape ranges from citations by professors in literary criticism to acclaim as a featured competitor on HBO’s Def Poetry Slam.

    "I am not perfect, but I was built for this."- $1.95

    I'd pay a lot more for this line alone.
