I had a blast talking to Sydney-based poet Louise Carter today about UK poet laureate Carol Ann Duffy and Australian poet Luke Davies. We cover everything from self-doubt to housemates, how copywriting sometimes leads to poetry and what it’s like to have tea with your poetry idol. For bonus points, check out:
- Louise’s wonderful blog alone with beauty and her poem Marrickville on Cordite.
- The shocking truth that Carol Ann has not written a poem for either of the recent royal births. Sharp intake of breath!!!
- Luke Davies’ chat with ABC Radio National about Interferon Psalms.
