Line / Break with Jericho Brown

Line / Break is a new interview series from Copper Canyon Press that goes off the page and into the homes and minds of our beloved poets. We’re hungry to see poets on screen talking shop, answering questions, and taking us behind the scenes of how they do what they do. So we’re giving them a call, and bringing those conversations to you. New episodes, hosted by Director of Publicity Laura Buccieri, launch on Fridays this spring.

Season 1 of Line / Break launches with Pulitzer Prize-winner Jericho Brown. In this episode, Jericho talks about saying “no,” and his intention to laugh every day—and sings some iconic Diana Ross.

We’re back next week with the fabulous poet and playwright, Sarah Ruhl. Stay tuned!


Line / Break with Copper Canyon Press joins a vibrant community of programming bringing poets and their readers together—including fellow Line Breaks! We want to give a shout-out to the Young Writers Project podcast, the poetry book club at Malvern Books, the Line Break Reading series in Chicago, and The Poetry School podcast in the UK.
