Portraits of Poets Series: Rangi McNeil

Photographer Ted Roeder has gorgeously and gloriously shot our New Year’s Day Marathon Reading for the past two years. We’re happy to announce that we have found a way to keep working with him throughout the year. Through a series of short videos of poets reading their work and portrait series, Ted will be documenting some of the people engaged in the Poetry Project community. Our first featured poet is Rangi McNeil!

Rangi McNeil was born in Laurinburg, NC. He’s the author of The Missing, & lives in Brooklyn.
