This week’s featured poem from Slate is entitled Tomorrow Night, Shake Me and is written by Terri Witek. As always, I want to encourage all of the blog readers to head over to Slate (just click the poem title here) to listen to Terri Witek read her poem aloud. As I’m sure you’re tired of hearing me say, hearing a poem read aloud by its author is an important thing to experience. So be sure to check that out.
Terri Witek, according to her website, has written several books to date. These include Exit Island (2012), The Shipwreck Dress (2008) — a Florida Book Award winner — and Robert Lowell and LIFE STUDIES: Revising the Self (1993). She currently teaches English at Stetson University, where she holds the Sullivan Chair in Creative Writing.
