The Daily Digest: Poetry is Dead, Long Live Poetry

Recent articles in the Guardian have highlighted rising poetry sales and how young women are increasingly taking over the poetry scene. Are millennials turning to poetry for clarity in times of political uncertainty? We discuss this, the rise of instapoetry - and its stars - as well as the evolution of poetry in the age of social media.

Produced by: Tina Carmillia

Presented by: Juliet Jacobs, Tina Carmillia, and Sharmilla Ganesan
