Late Night Conversation - Hanif Willis-Abdurraqib

Last month, I was lucky enough to be able to interview poet, essayist, and now MTV columnist Hanif Willis-Abdurraqib about the writing life and his new book, The Crown Ain't Worth Much, out from Button Poetry at AWP next weekend. The book is really great, and if you'll be at AWP, you should definitely stop by their booth and pick up your copy. After asking to interview him about his poetry, I remembered that I'd actually read one of his essays before I knew he was a poet, and so it was really interesting to me to come at his work from both of those angles, and talking to him about it was fantastic. I hope you'll enjoy our conversation as much as I did!
