Still Something Rattles

Terence Degnan is a CMU English alum.

As a poet and spoken word artist, you could say that storytelling is in Terence Degnan’s blood. But it does not end there. Degnan, a former Carnegie Mellon University student who studied creative writing, is also interested in how the world around us makes us who we are.

His second book of poems, “Still Something Rattles,” was just published by Sock Monkey Press. The concept book features themed chapters on "Letters From Purgatory,” "Unicorn” and "Rome.”

Playwright Erin Courtney called Degnan’s writing in the new book, “language [that] crackles, sparks and flies when you read it out loud.”

He recently sat down with Dietrich College News.
