Matthew Thorburn, Poet - Author of Dear Almost
Earlier this year, I sent an email off into the blue, across the water, to a poet whose work I deeply admire. I wasn't sure I'd found a current email address for him, or would receive a response--but what followed was a thoughtful, insightful exchange via email. I'm very grateful to Ciaran Carson for his warm and generous response. He kindly took the time to talk about his work with this admiring reader. You can read our interview on the Ploughshares blog.
And look for a few more interviews with amazing poets coming up as we close out the year, including Margaret Rhee, C. Dale Young and Allison Joseph.
