PODCAST: Happy Hour Symposium #1: Bowering & Stanley


Georges 01Welcome to the Happy Hour Symposia, our new podcast series.

Happy Hour Symposium #1 features two accomplished poets and long-time friends, George Bowering and George Stanley, reading from their latest works (The World, I Guess and North of California St.) and conversing about The Muse, MFA programs, the “A” and “B” teams in poetry, whether or not Robert Frost sucks, who’s the better poet, and much more.

You can listen below, download the mp3 for later, or listen on SoundCloud or iTunes.




Thanks to the excellent staff at the Vancouver Public Library for use of their Inspiration Lab, and to Amy van Wyk, our summer intern, for getting this project off the ground. Forthcoming episodes will feature Julie Emerson & Roxanna Bikadoroff, Louis Cabri & Donato Mancini, Andrew Struthers, and many more.
