Tune in to KUOW 94.9 public radio on Wednesdays between 2 and 3pm, and Saturday afternoons from noon to 1 p.m. to hear the best of Pacific Northwest poets. You’ll find previous KUOW poetry segments, including author interviews, by searching “Elizabeth Austen” at kuow.org.
On April 6, 2011, I had the great pleasure of talking poetry for an hour with former poet laureate Billy Collins and Steve Scher, the host of KUOW’s Weekday. You’ll find the audio of our conversation here.
We both read a few poems, talked about what makes a good poem, National Poetry Month, the April issue of Oprah magazine… I hope you enjoy it—it was really fun to do!
