« WHAT CAN POETRY DO? Part 2 [Kelle Groom] | Main | DRIVE: Car Poems [Kelle Groom] »

August 28, 2014


Hi Kelle,

I've enjoyed every one of your beautiful blog entries this week and was especially grateful for your interview with Brian Turner, which, like the best literary interviews, allows him to reveal elements of his process and intentions that are hidden from the work itself. I teach his work-- and yours-- here in CT. The interview, and your magnificent essay about your residency at the James Merrill House, will be part of my curriculum. Thank you for giving them to us. You're missed here.

(Sending the link to my students now)

Kelle... amazing, right? Are you there through september? I'm reading on the 21st. Beautifully written post.

Thank you, Kelle, for this lovely and evocative post. We're so looking forward to January!

Great ideas especially on the poems.
