Happy Birthday, Emily Dickinson
Today would have been Emily Dickinson's 180th birthday, so to celebrate her poetry and its endurance into the 21st century, qarrtsiluni co-editor Dave Bonta asked a group of poets to record their favorite Emily poems for a special Woodrat Podcast. You can hear me, Kelli Russell Agodon, Ivy Alvarez, Nic Sebastian, Christine Swint, Dick Jones and many more read poems and talk about how Emily has impacted our own work. Hats off to Dave for pulling this together so quickly and for asking me to participate. You can listen at this link or download it and listen at your leisure. The whole podcast is a little over an hour.
