“Imagination”: A Visual Poetry Collaboration


[Editor’s note: We love it when people collaborate. This new work by cartoonist Jonny Jimison and poet Chris Yokel is what happens when friends create together. Simple and elegant. More please.]


Chris currently teaches writing and literature to community college students in Massachusetts. He is the author of six books of poetry, and can probably be found reading a book, drinking chai, and wearing flannel. In 2018 he and his wife Jen co-founded The Poetry Pub, an online community for poets. He enjoys walking in the woods, hanging out in coffee shops, and poking around used bookstores.

    I love how the artists reimagined comic art for this poem. As a teacher, I can see this helping children to understand and appreciate poetry more clearly, especially some of the old classics. Thanks for sharing!

    Do you guys accept poetry submissions as well as article submissions?

    Great piece.

    I’ve recently gotten my screenwriting students together with a fellow teacher’s comic art students. My students help with the story and the art students do the illustrations. It’s fun to see where it all goes! I love to be able to share things like this with them so inspire their imaginations.
