Quizzing the poets
I've done a few Q&As with poets recently at Chapter 16 that might interest those of you who come here for the verse:
Claudia Emerson won the Pulitzer Prize in 2006 for Late Wife, and she has some interesting things to say about how writers mine personal experience. Her interview is here.
Blas Falconer is a wonderful poet I've written about in the past. (In fact, he was featured in this blog's inaugural post.) Blas has edited a new book on the craft of poetry, Mentor and Muse, which he talks about here.
Bill Brown is another local writer I've discussed before. He's a wonderful teacher as well as a poet, and he shares some thoughts on both vocations here.
Of course, there's plenty of other interesting stuff at Chapter 16. Go to the home page to find it all.
Poetry, Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, 1879
