Planet Poet-Words in Space  – NEW PODCAST!  LISTEN to my May llth, 2021 

WIOX Radio conversation with the original and exuberant poet Roberta Gould on her latest collection Woven Lightning (Spuyten Duyvil, 2019) and other works.  

 “The tension between the lyrical and the practical, the soaring and the quotidian give her poetry its arresting and archetypical energy.  A procession of gongs and silences, powerful and affecting.  A poet to the bone.  – Stanley Nelson, winner of the Thomas Wolfe Poetry Award.

  “Roberta Gould is a poet who brings all her senses to her work …the focus is beautifully and lovingly on the familiar…poems that are full of spirit and inventiveness.”  

--Donald Lev

 Planet Poet’s Poet-At-Large Pamela Manché Pearce will also join the show this month to talk about Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky and spirituality in art and poetry.
