Camille Rankine

“I find that I’m looking for violence in the poems that I read.” Camille Rankine reads her poem “Little Children, My Apologies” and speaks about the types of poems she admires as part of the P.O.P. video series, which was shot and edited by Rachel Eliza Griffiths in partnership with the Academy of American Poets. Rankine’s debut poetry collection, Incorrect Merciful Impulses (Copper Canyon Press, 2015), is featured in Page One in the November/December issue of Poets & Writers Magazine.
