July 7, 2012 Tiff Dressen live in studio!

On Saturday, Tiff Dressen joined us live in studio. Tiff is a member of the g.e. collective and a member/editor of Kelsey Street Press. She discussed her own work but also the poetry that inspires her. She started off reading Inger Christensen's work which influenced her to write Because Icarus, Children (published by Winteredpress). The chorus and use of different voices are highlighted in Tiff's poems. She also read from her self-made chapbook Messages (contact her at for a chapbook of your own!). Tiff shared her unique use of space on the page and the rhythm that is so integral in the construction of her poetry. Click here to listen
