New Poetic Form With Wyoming Roots Goes Viral


You've probably read poems like sonnets or haiku. This year, a new form of poetry was invented. In a matter of months, poets adopted the new form, and a new journal has been created to showcase it. We're joined now by one of its inventors, poet Lori Howe.

She teaches at the University of Wyoming and is editor in chief of GLEAM: The Journal of the Cadralor. Howe explained to Wyoming Public Radio's Micah Schweizer how this type of poem came about and why it's called a cadralor.

Here are three cadralor poems, written by Lori Howe. Click "Listen" to hear her read each poem.

Cadralor #9 "(dis)articulation"-for Patrick


Cadralor #5, "Thirst"-for Patrick


Cadralor #4


GLEAM: The Journal of the Cadralor has a live launch event on Friday, December 5 at 5:00 p.m. (The archived event will also be available on demand.)
