Talking Shop With CAConrad... Lannan Writer In Residence Interviews

The Lannan Writing Residency is a three to eight week fellowship where poets, authors, journalists, and translators are invited to live and work in Marfa, Texas and present their work at the Marfa Book Company. Over the last couple months I've had the immense privilege of interviewing the Lannan fellows for our local NPR affiliate. In addition to reading their exceptional books, its a joy to be able to talk a little shop with writers who are reaching their prime after years of hard work.

As a part of the Lannan Writer in Residence interview series on Marfa Public Radio, I recently had the unique pleasure of interviewing Philadelphia poet, CAConrad. CA is the author of A Beautiful Marsupial Afternoon and Book of Frank (both released by Wave Books), Advanced Elvis Course (Soft Skull Press), and Full Moon Hawk Application (Assless Chaps Press). His forthcoming collection Ecodevience (Wave Books) will be released in September. CA is the creator of the (Soma)tic poetry method, a process of maintaining an extreme present while writing. Check out the interview and I highly encourage you to purchase any one of CA's beautiful books. They're all intense! Also, check out CAConrad's website...

CA also hosts an ongoing internet poetry show called, JUPITER 88. He was kind enough to have me on his show where I read a 2011 poem from my first collection For Anyone Who Ever Had A Heart...
