Arthur Kayzakian - Writing the Opposite Gender and Letting Language Lead

Season 1, Episode 19,   Apr 01, 2020, 09:28 PM

In this episode we interview Iranian-Armenian-American poet, Arthur Kayzakian who has just joined The Poetry Salon as a workshop facilitator! Kazakian talks about what it’s like to grow up in a war zone and migrate to a different country, how he learned English as a language of abandonment, and ultimately how he fell in love with poetry as a profession. Listen to us discuss the ways language can infuse energy into a poem and how we can responsibly use poetry to explore the POV of people different from ourselves.
