A few months ago, James Roberts made an early morning drive from Madison, Wisconsin to spend an hour with the writers at Harwood Place. He had been there before as a visiting poet but returned this time as interviewer and Radio Host of A Space for Poetry. His radio show airs every other Friday on WWMV (95.5) in Madison, and you can listen to the archives on Soundcloud.com (just search “A Space for Poetry”).
Many thanks to James, who shined a light via the airwaves on the poets and writers at Harwood Place. You’ve read me go on and on about their good work. Now, you can listen to them read a few of their pieces out loud by clicking the play button below.
Some of my favorites: “Thoughts After Hearing a Poet Speak” (Betty Sydow), “An Experience with Color” (Richard Borchers), and Chuck Mortiz’s “An Ode to Christi Craig”…. (Hey, that’s me!)
