After reading the following statement from Dorthea Lasky’s chapbook, Poetry is Not a Project, please fill out the short survey below and read the review of Collective Task that corresponds to your answer. Lasky writes:

“I would argue that a poet who has a project that he can lucidly discuss is a pretty boring poet, at best. I would argue that a poet with a project might not be a poet at all. Or at least a baby poet, not a great one…. I would argue that a poet who says he has a project probably has no sense of the idea of habitus and its intersection with the act of creation. Yeah. I think the term “project” has nothing to do with poetry.”

      is ‘project’ accented on the first or second syllable?

      Only two options… agree or disagree?

    5. Sarah Sarai Says:

      There’s no try in project. There’s no pro in poetry.
