In I Was the Jukebox, Sandra Beasley eschews the speaker-as-poet convention and unleashes a collection teeming with the inanimate, the anachronistic, and the animal kingdom. She boldly channels figures from wartime and mythological culture; in 'Osiris Speaks' the Egyptian god gains new life as a vagabond: 'I left my heart in San Francisco. / I left my viscera in the Netherlands.' But even the most surreal images always keep one foot in everyday America: 'I left my liver on the 42 Line,' Osiris goes on to admit, 'headed from Farragut Square to the White House.' The nucleus of this collection includes many poems composed during a draft-a-day process referred to on the Web as NaPoWriMo (National Poetry Writing Month), founded by DC-area poet Maureen Thorson and coordinated to coincide with National Poetry Month.

After the death of James Gandolfini in the summer of 2013, David Starkey decided to pay poetic homage to The Sopranos TV series and its star. Like a Soprano features one poem for each episode, with the poem sharing the episode's title. Like the series itself, the poems are by turns violent and sexual, comic and absurd. Never before has an entire television program received such close attention from a serious poet: this is a landmark in the crossover between poetic and popular culture.

"Fifteen years ago I killed my sister." So begins Adam Rapp's highly acclaimed play Nocturne, in which a 32-year-old former piano prodigy recounts the tragic events that tore his family apart. With a keen eye for human relationships and a deft ear for language, Rapp explores the aftershock of this unimaginable event. The father is so incapable of forgiveness he puts a gun in his son's mouth; the mother so shattered, she deserts the family and eventually takes leave of her sanity altogether; the son--only 17 years old at the time--sets out for New York City. There, he seeks an uneasy refuge in books and reinvents himself as a writer. Across the decade and a half that follows he tries to cope with the ramifications of his own anguish and estrangement while making a desperate search for redemption. A devastating, elegant, and gripping dissection of the American dream, Nocturne signals a brave new voice in American theater.

These style-specific sections provide depth as they compare the different genres, furnishing students with a comprehensive understanding of creative writing as a discipline and fostering creativity. The discussion concludes with a chapter on digital media and an appendix on literary citizenship and publishing.
