New Interview at Fringe with Poet Eliot Khalil Wilson

My interview with the author of The Saint of Letting Small Fish Go and This Island of Dogs is up at Fringe, in the new summer issue. I had the chance to ask him about how he became interested in poetry, what it’s like writing as a Southerner and an Arab-American, and how MFA programs have improved poetry.

It was a lot of fun to ask him a variety of questions, simple things like "What is poetry's purpose?" He's a witty, knowledgeable, and wonderful poet. Read him. Buy the books, look him up online. He's going to be a big deal. No kidding.
