One of Elizabeth Warren’s strategists is a poet. Not just like your uncle Clem who has a vast collection of occasionally-specific limericks. Like a real, honest-to-goodness genius. Matches Warren, frankly (I’d vote the hell out of Warren if I were American, fyi).
Another reason to be pro-Warren: she supports (and is supported by) poets. Turns out that one of the poets up for the National Book Award this year, Camonghne Felix, is also the Director of Surrogates & Strategic Communications at Elizabeth Warren for President.
Felix has been longlisted for the National Book Award for her collection Build Yourself a Boat, which Morgan Parker described as “a thrillingly new form of storytelling, as much investigation as it is song, as broken as it is doused in genuine strength.” I will personally be rooting for them both.
