I was lucky enough to sit down at the Kelly Writers House with Al Filreis and Anna Strong Safford of ModPo, the online course in Modern American Poetry that they host at the University of Pennsylvania, to talk about one of the “pop-up pastorals” from my book The Republic of Exit 43. The whole series of conversations is an immensely generative and generous act of collective interpretation, and anyone can join in. Check it out!

Al and Anna are joined by Jennifer Scappettone at the Kelly Writers House's Wexler Studio to discuss her poem/visual piece, "was no one / way went Alice." Enroll anytime in "ModPo," a free, open, online course on Modern and Contemporary American Poetry, at http://modpo.org.
