Many thanks to Michael Swellander for including me in the second podcast episode of Pinecones. I’m reading poems from Palimpsest and from my next (still in progress) chapbook Heaven Below.
The first episode was kick ass and the poets in this go around are tremendous. Don’t believe me? Go take a listen for yoself.
The second episode of Pinecones | A Podcast of Young Poets is complete, uploaded, and ready to swim down your ear canals via www.pineconespoetry.net.
Featured in this new hour of poetry are voices from across the United States, including: Bronx-bred poet Oscar Bermeo (Oakland, CA), Kundiman fellow and Houston PhD student Janine Joseph, Mathematics PhD candidate Andrew Cooper (Ann Arbor, MI), and long-time figure in the Texas literary scene Bryce Milligan (San Antonio, TX). Within the hour these poets share their poems, songs, and conversation on the topic of craft.
Pinecones is a show intended to showcase the work of young poets alongside that of older, more established poets. The show provides generous time for readings and conversation with all poets included as a way to 1) increase exposure for all featured artists and 2) increase contact and involvement between the two groups of artists.
