[LineBreak] Jane Hirshfield: What Comes Through

April 2, 2016

Award-winning poet, essayist, and translator Jane Hirshfield is our guest this week. Jane reads from her work, and shares the body, heart and mind that informs her deceptively clear, attentive poetry, asking why ‘how happy we are, how unhappy we are, doesn’t matter’. And Ryan offers some more ‘poetry sparks’ to nourish your own ideas.

Listeners to The Line Break can also join the The Line Break group on CAMPUS, the Poetry School’s free online community for poets.

Scottish Poetry Library Podcast: Ryan’s Last Cut

May 11, 2015

For seven years Colin Fraser and I have been making the Scottish Poetry Library podcast. In that time I’ve had the opportunity to interview over 100 poets, many of whom you’ll know. In this, our final episode, we look back at some of my favourite moments. In this very special episode, you’ll hear candid clips, bemused moments, revelations and advice from some of the world’s most talented and generous poets. My sincere thanks to everyone who has allowed me to talk with them over the years and we wish Jennifer Williams and Colin Waters the best in helming the SPL podcast from here.

Featuring: Robert Pinsky, Caroline Bird, Sarah Broom, Owen Sheers, Jed Milroy, Matthew Zapruder, Jane Hirshfield, Golan Haji, Sabreen Khadim, Krystelle Bamford, John Glenday, Mark Doty, Paula Meehan, Adam Zagajewski and Mary Ruefle.

And if you want to continue listening to the podcasts Colin & I make, you can find all sorts of conversations on our Culture Laser podcast including favourites like this conversation with the playwright Jo Clifford.

If you enjoyed our final episode or want to share your favourite memories from our SPL podcast you can tweet to [email protected] or just drop me a line. We’d love to hear what were your favourite poetry podcast conversations.
