Greg Bem interviews Seattle poet/interviewer Paul E Nelson 4 days after his 60th birthday about his poetry and his work with the Cascadia Poetics LAB (the former SPLAB.)
A 2011 interview with Seattle poet and fiber artist Carletta Carrington Wilson conducted by Paul E Nelson. They talked about Wilson’s poetry, filled with Garcia Lorca’s notion of duende, what first drew her to poetry (or how poetry called her in elementary school) about how her work reflects her study of slavery and some of her own work which haunts her and which comes from the voice of a person who was enslaved. She calls it the “history of the disappeared.”
Larissa Lai joins Paul to talk about a host of topics from colonialism in contemporary China to the haibun form, the Tao Te Ching, and her new book, Iron Goddess of Mercy.
