Ranting About Transatlantic Poetry

Ireland-based The Ranting Beast interviewed me recently about the Transatlantic Poetry on Air reading series. I talk a bit about how the idea came to me, the perfectly imperfect nature of the very first broadcast, and what we are doing to make future broadcasts engaging and memorable. You can read the full interview here.

I am particularly excited about our upcoming broadcast in August, featuring Jane Hirshfield and George Szirtes, two well-known poets who are also translators, scholars, and deeply thoughtful people. It should be a wonderful evening. In case you need one, here is a personal invitation to join us:
