Matthew Thorburn, Poet - Author of Dear Almost
Thanks so much to editor Rebecca Morgan Frank for the chance to be featured in a contributor's spotlight over at the Memorious blog. I had a great time talking about Dear Almost, Elizabeth Bishop and epistolary poems with my old friend Leslie Harrison. You can read our conversation here.
Monica Youn’s poems are precise, sharp-edged and fleet-footed; they always seem to be moving in three different directions at once. It was a pleasure to read her new book, Blackacre, and have the chance to talk to her about it earlier this month via email for this Ploughshares interview.
