Poet interviews

I'm gearing up to do some interviews, and reading poet interviews on other journals is a great way to get ideas. There's a wealth of wisdom out there -- much of it contradictory advice about how to write and publish poetry, which makes it all the more fun.

One site that has an archive worth listening to is Artful Dodge.

Fringe Magazine has short interviews on the blog, longer ones in each issue. , which is now going to appear twice a year, will have interviews.

The Poets Q&A at From the Fishouse is especially interesting, because the poets answer in audio.

Anyone have additions? I just love reading and better yet hearing poets talk about their craft and practice.
