interviewed home

rob mclennan asked me 7 questions about my forthcoming book The End of Something at Touch the Donkey.

Kelin Loe and I met in a motel room to talk about epic and the girl hero for Flying Object Radio.

I answered some questions about painting and writing for Maria Anderson at Paper Darts.

After a visit to Columbia College Chicago, Gabrielle Faith Williams interviewed me for Columbia Poetry Reviews.

Adam Clay and I talked about Young Tambling and life on the road in the Winter 2013 issue of Denver Quarterly (print only).

Katherine Gwynn interviewed me in the fall of 2013 for KU's undergraduate journal, The Siren.

I talked with Sarah Dravec when I was visiting the University of Akron in October 2013. You can hear that conversation at Dressing Room Poetry Journal, here.

Tony Trigilio and I had a conversation on his podcast Radio Free Albion right before the fall leg of the Young Tambling tour. The transcript of that conversation can be read at The Conversant.

Christopher Nelson asked me some questions about Young Tambling in June 2013 at Under A Warm Green Linden, here.

Before a reading at Stockton College in May 2012, Max and I talked with Cynthia Arrieu-King for her radio program, The Last Word. That conversation is now up at The Conversant.

At The Volta's Take Down the Clouds there's a brief Q&A from the fall of 2012, when we were living in Ireland (posted in 2/2013).

After a reading at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in 2010, Kathleen Graber and I had a conversation about photography, technology, fortunetelling, book tours, and fate, recorded by the folks at Blackbird.

Max and I visited the Earth Room with DJ Dolack in Episode #3 of Coldfront's video interview series Tourist Trap, NYC.

I've been interviewed about The Last 4 Things by Jean Valentine in Bookslut, DJ Dolack in Coldfront, and Derrick Mund in SpringGun. (The uncut version of the interview with Derrick is up at his blog.)

Max and I discussed various things (including the last 4) in his movie My Own Eyes, a documentary collage we originally thought might be the "special features" on the The Last 4 Things DVD. (More on that here.)

When I visited Chapman University in October 2009, Andrew Mauzey and I had a long audio conversation. Dan Nester asked me a few questions in his "Getting to know:" series on the Best American Poetry blog. In March 2008, Rich Fisher of KWGS-FM Public Radio Tulsa interviewed Susan Briante, Linda Russo, and me on Studio Tulsa. Jennifer Bartlett and Jeannine Hall Gailey interviewed me about case sensitive, in St. Elizabeth Street and Eclectica, respectively. I was also one of the 133 poets who were asked 10 questions by Lance Phillips for his project Here Comes Everybody.

Over at every other day, I did a series of interviews with poets who, at that time, had just one book out. (My basic question: How has your first book changed your life?) After 5 or 6 of those appeared, people began asking me when I would answer the questions I'd asked. I thought I'd do that when my own first book came out. Then I decided to wait until the series was complete. My self-interview (#104) went up in August '08. You can read it here.
