Poem of the Week
December 4, 2016 to December 11, 2016

Skin
by Soraya Peerbaye

With previous Poem of the Week selections, we've looked at how storytelling draw us into poems on the merits of compelling narratives, but manage to achieve even more when combined with poetic effects and artistry. Soraya Peerbaye has done that affectingly and persuasively in "Skin", a three-part prose poem from her 2016 Griffin Poetry Prize shortlisted collection Tell: poems for a girlhood.
