New Late Night Conversations - Rachel Hadas, Gabriel Bamgbose, and Monica Ong

This spring, I had the pleasure of interviewing three fantastic poets for Late Night Conversation.

In April, I spoke to the incomparable Rachel Hadas about inspiration, illness, and language.

In May, I sat down with Nigerian poet Gabriel Bamgbose to talk about oral poetry, music, and how he balances teaching and academic work with creative work.

And most recently, in June, I spoke with Monica Ong about her debut book, medicine, and how the visual arts inspire her work.

I hope you'll have a listen to all three, because each of these poets is incredible in their own way.
