January 13, 2013- Laura Walker Live!!!

It was a pleasure to have Laura Walker join us for a live interview this past Saturday. A large portion of the interview was a discussion of Laura's latest book Follow-Haswed (Apogee Press 2012), which is a collection of collage poems composed from fragments from Volume VI of the Oxford English Dictionary. We discussed the constraint of the project as well as how narrative is utilized within the poems. Her book investigates definition itself, in part by deconstructing the narratives used within the dictionary to illustrate the definitions. Laura shared some new poems-in-progress called Genesis, which are inspired by the cadences of the King James Bible. We ended the interview with a discussion about writing process.
