Sojourners magazine, the leading publication for progressive Christians and where I moonlight as poetry editor when I’m not blogging, now offers a unique poetry feature on our Web site www.sojo.net.
All poets featured in the print publication are also showcased online with audio clips of the poets reading their work and sharing about their inspiration and writing process.
The poet featured for December 2008 is Rachel Guido deVries, who teaches creative writing in New York. Her most recent collection of poems is The Brother Inside Me (Guernica Editions, 2008). She gives a moving reading of her poem, “Imperfection,” and shares how a study of the word “religion” led her to write about faith in a new and surprising way.
