The mid-90’s were a transformational period in American Poetry. And NEXT… MAGAZINE was there on the ground floor, covering all the dramatic changes, from slams to hip-hop to poetry on the internet. This book contains the best articles from that period, including coverage of the national slams, Taos Poetry Circus, and the United States of Poetry, as well as commentary and advice which remains relevant today. Also included are interviews with such figures as Henry Rollins, Patricia Smith, Ellyn Maybe, Gerald Locklin, and Miranda July.
