Poets Q&A at Smartish Pace

I have no idea how I could not have known about this before, but Smartish Pace has an online feature called Poets Q&A. Anyone can write in with their questions for the poet of the month (who at this time is Rae Armantrout, accepting questions until 8/29/11, to post answers 9/13/11). Poet Mark Doty was the most recent poet queried and he is beginning to post responses now.

Find out why Robert Hass has such long stretches between books (a response that I can completely identify with!), how Jorie Graham feels about being misread, and why Bob Hicok calls his writing process "rhythm writing." Plus plenty of other poets on many topics suggested by readers. Enjoy.
