Poets in Person

The December 2011 issue of the Cortland Review features C. K. Williams in its "Poets in Person" series. Watch a 3 1/2-minute video of Williams in his own home, and hear him say intriguing (and encouraging) things such as "The revisions that took me hours and hours to do once now take me minutes and minutes, so I end up with a lot of free time on my hands." See where Williams lives and writes, and find out who he was reading when he realized he himself would be a poet.

Other poets featured in this series (such as Philip Levine, Alan Shapiro, and Stephen Dunn) can be seen at this link, along with some readings sponosed by the review.

Plus don't miss some great poems in the December issue, by poets such as Alicia Ostriker, Chase TwichellSusan Stewart, and Michael Blumenthal. One of the great features of the Cortland Review is that they often feature an audio file of the poet reading his or her own work. Enjoy.
