Episode 122: Mightier Than the Sword #19

This week on The Easy Chair, it’s a fabulous new episode of Mightier Than the Sword! Steph Spaulding and I are talking poetry. What are the differences between writing prose and writing poetry? Steph bravely shares two original poems, one involving an Etch-a-Sketch, the other, her birth control pills. I am not that confident a poet, so I read a personal favorite with a very overt connection to The Easy Chair podcast. Steph and I talk about our writing relationship to poetry, both in our pasts (earnest and embarrassing) and our presents, which would seem to be equally earnest but less angst-filled and better crafted. It’s a fun exploration of the writing form we both try on for size from time to time. Join us for this lively and as always, disarmingly honest, discussion.
