Interviewer Renee Beauregard Lute recently described me as a “truly fabulous” poet. The interview was with Lissa Kiernan, who created and orchestrates the website poetrycoop.com.

Lissa Kiernan's Poetry Coop Interview
Every month the Poetry Coop offers a new workshop by a talented “teaching artist.” Many of the workshops are free, which is an amazing gift, given the quality. For instance, this month the Editor of the well-known journal Arsenic Lobster, Susan Yount, a tremendous poet in her own right, is leading a workshop on Federico Garcia Lorca’s goblinesque concept of duende. Too late to sign up for this one, it is maxed out.
But there is a new workshop every month. In fact, by some wild twist of lucky fate, yours truly is leading a workshop in September. To find out more, read the above interview, or just visit the coop. It’s new, friendly, soul-shaking and effacacious--and it’s taking the poetry world by storm!
You can join without taking a workshop, so why not?
As an enticement, here is a little Coop trivia. Another name for the site is the Rooster Moans. Why does it have this intriguing sobriquet? Visit to find out ...
PS: Also named “truly fabulous” by the interviewer were poets Maureen Alsop and Alexandra van de Kamp. I am in exceedingly good company!
