L'Esperance Interviews Vuong

One of my favorite poets, Mari L'Esperance, interviewed one of my other favorite poets, Ocean Vuong, over at Connotation

I've mentioned Vuong's writing practice on this blog before, and L'Esperance discusses it in her interview with him, describing it as "reassuring and forgiving," which is an apt way to put it.

Learn about Vuong's childhood, and read a few of his poems at Connotation Press too.

Below see the cover to his chapbook, Burnings, published by Sibling Rivalry Press.

Our Ocean has many fans, so I'm sure it'll make the rounds. I'm pleased for him—he and his poems deserve this recognition. Thanks for facilitating, Jessica. Always good to be in touch.
