    how poems hAPPen: Unexpected(with Kevin Irie)

    Episode 2 (with Kevin Irie):

    Doyali Islam: Hello. You're attending to the Arc Poetry Podcast. I'm Doyali Islam, Poetry Editor of Arc Poetry Magazine. On this program, we invite one poet from the latest issue of the magazine to read their published poem on-air, and to engage in a conversation about how their poem came to be in the world: the impulses or creative processes behind it. Despite the fact that a poem's origins can sometimes, in some ways, be mysterious to its maker or makers, we will attempt this discussion.

    Today my guest is Kevin Irie. Kevin's poem, "Hierarchies, The Northern Harrier Hawk,” was published in Arc 86, the Summer 2018 issue of the magazine. Kevin Irie has published poetry in Canada, The States, Australia, and England. His poems have been broadcast on CBC Radio and have been translated into Spanish, French, and Japanese. He has also been long-listed for the 2017 CBC Poetry Prize, nominated for the ReLit Award, and shortlisted for Arc's 2009 Poem of the Year contest. His book, Viewing Tom Tomson: A Minority Report (Frontenac House, 2012), was a finalist for the Acorn-Plantos People's Poetry Award, as well as the Toronto Book Award. He lives in Toronto.

    Hi, Kevin!

    Kevin Irie: Hi.

    DI: It's nice to have you here.

    KI: Thank you for inviting me.

    DI: You're welcome. So, I'm wondering if we could jump in and hear your beautiful poem.

    KI: With pleasure.

    Episode 1 (with Liz Ross):

    Hello! You’re attending to the Arc Poetry Podcast. I’m Doyali Islam, Poetry Editor of Arc Poetry Magazine.

    On this program, we invite one poet from the latest issue of the magazine to read their published poem on air and to engage in a conversation about how their poem came to be in the world – the impulses or creative processes behind it. Despite the fact that a poem’s origins can sometimes, in some ways, be mysterious to its maker (or makers) – we will attempt this discussion.

    My guest today is Liz Ross. Liz’s poem, “Feeding Iris Strawberries,” was published in Arc 85, the Winter 2018 issue of the magazine.

    Liz Ross is the author of Kingdom (Palimpsest, 2015) and After Birth, a second poetry collection forthcoming in the spring of 2019. Her work has been published in literary magazines across Canada, longlisted for the CBC poetry prize, and selected for inclusion in The Best of the Best Canadian Poetry in English. She grew up in Victoria and now lives in Hamilton, where she’s working on a collection of essays.
