    02. Irène Mathieu – Agency Within the Patterns of History and Oppression

    Irène Mathieu's writing is wrought across generations and epochs, but also in the rhythms of her own life as a black woman in America. Her day job as a practicing pediatrician influences how she feels language and history lodge themselves in the body, and what poetry can or can't do about it. We talked about how she thinks through her place in her own and in her family’s history, and what time itself means in when reckoning with historical patterns of oppression.

    01. Leah Naomi Green – The Soil We're Planted In

    Leah Naomi Green's poetry and prose express the intimate and wild connections she cultivates (literally and figuratively) between herself, her family and community, and the greater than human world. Her life as a homesteader in rural Virginia both shapes and is a product of her poetic imagination and her expansive cosmology. Her first book of poetry, The More Extravagant Feast, won the Walt Whitman Award of the Academy of American Poets and is published by Graywolf Press.
