3 poets and 3 comic artists collaborate on ‘Identity’

For National Poetry Month, we asked three poets — Diana Goetsch, Karisma Price and Sally Wen Mao — for a poem on the subject of identity. We then asked three artists — Margaret Flatley, Anjali Chandrashekhar and S. Mirk — to translate the poems into comic illustrations. This collaboration between writers and artists makes for a unique visualization of poetry, with every line (staying true to original line breaks) drawn out in words and sketches, coming together in a cohesive series of comic panels.
