Everyday Poetry with Sandee Gertz : Feb 4, 2018 : Radio Free Nashville

On Sunday, Feb. 4, I went live on the Everyday Poetry airwaves talking shop with the always lovely Sandee Gertz.

Here’s a recording.

Skip to 3:30 if you want to bypass the intro song & get straight to the meat of it.

We discussed our favorite female influences & read some of their work. We discussed how starting, developing your voice, and being fearless is so crucial to poetry. We also shared some drafts from our current works-in-progress & discussed resources for beginners.

With only minor technical difficulties & lots of openness & feminine vulnerability, we had a pretty rocking show.
