The Weekend Belongs to In Verse

Lu Olkowski’s docu-poetry series got a double-launch today. PRI’s Studio 360 with Kurt Andersen features “Women of Troy” this week, 3 beautifully crafted sound-rich segments blending punch-in-the-gut poetry and unforgettable documentary clips that reveal the real lives of the working poor.

Also, Transom.org, the showcase and workshop for new public radio, puts In Verse in the spotlight with an essay on the making of this unique collaborative project. Transom Editors introduce the story this way: “One advantage of the modern age is that good work travels fast; you may already have heard and seen “Women of Troy.” But if not, get thee to Transom and spend a few minutes.”
