Thank you for your patience!

Hi Poet as Radio listeners! As you might have noticed, we have not posted a show in a few weeks. This is unfortunate considering the great live guests we've had. On 10/6 we were joined by New York writers Farrah Field, Dan Magers and Jared White. On 10/14, Candy Shue joined us in the studio to read one of her fabulous book reviews, and help us discuss writing and process. Due to some shifts happening at San Francisco Community Radio, these shows are not archived yet. But as soon as they are, we will post them here. As always, thank you for your support!

September 22, 2012- Dean Rader Live!!!

We love having live guests and on September 22nd, San Francisco poet Dean Rader certainly did not disappoint. Dean is a professor at University of San Francisco and the winner of the 2010 T.S Elliot Poetry Prize for his book Works & Days (Truman State University Press). Dean drew inspiration for his book and title from a Hesiod poem. Touching on both form and content, we discussed the construction of the book. Works & Days is divided up into three sections, and comprised in part, of 'self portraits' and 'Frog and Toad' story pieces. Listen to Dean Rader share his wonderful work with us!
