Mississippi Arts Hour


An Arts Hour Extra!

Poetry is alive and thriving in the Magnolia State! On the Mississippi Poetry Podcast you’ll hear poets sharing their work, telling their stories, and offering tips to help listeners flex their poetic muscles. In this episode, poet and Mississippi Review editor Adam Clay joins host and Mississippi Poet Laureate Catherine Pierce to talk about inventing new forms, being a little reckless, and how writing poetry is like long-distance running.
