Welcome back for episode two of Line / Break, featuring poet, playwright, and Pulitzer Prize-finalist Sarah Ruhl. Sarah joins us to talk about the beauty of mentorship and how an idea finds its form as a poem or a play—and recites the very first poem she wrote (at age 6!).
We’re back next week with Hurston/Wright Legacy Award-winner Alison C. Rollins. Stay tuned!
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.
