Kim Addonizio: Finding the Voice of a Poem

Season 3, Episode 30,   Apr 08, 2021, 11:45 PM

How do you find your voice? What about the voice of a poem or piece? In this interview Kim talks about her influences, and how they have helped her find her own voice. She also talks about getting past her own voice to find the voice of the poem itself, and how she helps support her students in doing the same. You'll also get bonus anecdotes about rhyming in the high desert, writing about a scorpion in an Italian Castle, having her poem printed in the New York City subway, and the really surprising journey she had to go on to get her book, Poet's Companion, published. (If you've never read this book, you can get it through Norton today : )
