Celebrating Poetry Month

    Hi everyone,

    This morning Missouri State University poet and English professor Marcus Cafagna and I will appear on KSMU Radio, broadcast from the MSU campus. The program, which starts at 10:00, is Arts News with host Randy Stewart. I’m not sure when we’ll be on but I think it’s fairly close to the top of the show.

    KSMU (91.1 FM) is a listener supported radio station broadcasting a Public Radio format. During our ten minute segment, Marcus and I will discuss briefly why poetry is important and we’ll each read one or two of our poems. If you’d like to tune in, I hope you will.

    Marcus and I did a similar though longer show on KSMU a few years ago and I look forward to being with him again. He is coordinator of MSU’s creative writing program and both writes and researches poetry.
