Poet John Yamrus Joins Our Podcast Series Today
Poet John Yamrus joins WITS author's assistant Sarah Moore today to discuss his new collection of poetry, New and Selected Poems. This book is the nineteenth publication by John Yamrus, who whose previous offerings include sixteen books of poetry and two novels, and features both new work as well as poems that date back over the past twenty years. His work has been translated into several languages and been studied in classrooms at both the high school and college level.
Through his poetry, John Yamrus shares his observations on the ivory tower approach toward writing, his relationships with fellow poets, and the ordinary yet ridiculous moments in life. He will discuss his thoughts on all of these topics during the interview and read some selections from New and Selected Poems for the listeners.
