Columbia College Chicago has published its Columbia Poetry Review for 2019, and the latest issue includes poetry by Supernatural star Misha Collins. The journal’s 32nd issue also features works by Amy Gerstler, Ron Koertge, Bernadette Mayer, D.A. Powell, and many more.
Collins shared one of his poems called “Plumbing” with his Instagram followers today as a way of announcing the release. Check it out below.
Collins has been featured before in the Columbia Poetry Review. Two of his poems, “Old Bones” and “Baby Pants,” were published in the 2008 Columbia Poetry Review‘s Issue No. 21. Unfortunately, this particular edition is sold out along with most of the past issues.
He has shared his love of poetry with the fandom many times before, whether it be his own poetry or his favorite poems from poets such as Langston Hughes, Robert Frost, Rupi Kaur, Tyler Knott Greggson, and of course the incredible Mary Oliver. Recently he met up with Jon Lupin, The Poetry Bandit, and shared their meeting with fans on Instagram.
Whether or not he knows it, many fans have lauded the soothing quality of his spoken word videos on Instagram and Twitter. This past January, he shared the poem “The Summer Day” in response to the loss of Oliver. It quickly became this wanna-be-poet’s favorite.
Take a listen below, and hopefully it will whet your appetite for a copy of the Spring 2019 Columbia Poetry Review which you can order here.
