Carol Lycette
01:47:12
thank you all for your comments about joy. I am surprised. Clearly I don't understand the impact of writing poems. I do however, get great joy from hearing you read your poems. I prefer to listen to the voice vs. the voice I created in my head while reading a poem. So thank you.
Asela Kemper

Thank you to the entire Copper Canyon Press team— Michael for hosting and Marisa for putting this event together!
