Golden Walkman Magazine is a literary magazine in the form of a podcast aimed at giving the written word a voice. All work accepted and published is presented solely through audio. I love this idea, especially for poetry, but really for any genre. While I love what you can do with the page, I also believe that poetry should be read out loud.
Golden Walkman's Dialogue Submissions asked for poetry that responded to an instrumental piece of music, and winning pieces were chosen by the musician and by the editor. What I love about this project is that it explored what could be done with the audio format that couldn't be done on the page, such as music and poetry interacting. I'm super excited they chose my poem, please enjoy the episode, which features one piece of music and three poems from three different poets, below.
