More from the Poetry Conference ...


  1. Enjoyed this. Particularly the talk of messy poets. :)

  2. Hi Frank,

    I enjoyed this too.

    You do this relaxed conversational interview, which bring subjects from the higher intellect and experience down to earth. Of course, Wendy Cope seems down to earth herself. But, it would be great to see a collection of your video interviews, from the Inquirer, from West Chester PC, and wherever else, arranged on the same page somewhere.


  3. An excellent interview. I loved that it's just basically a conversation, with some good questions going back and forth.

    There's a lot of meat about creativity and the process, especially in part two, that would be worth transcribing and keeping on hand. Good advice, good reminders of things.

    I only have one of Wendy Cope's books on my shelves, but this made me go back and thumb through it again, and find one or two poems I liked very much.
