Thursday 8-1 KLL Radio welcomes Sean Patrick Hill!

Thursday I’m welcoming Sean Patrick Hill to the studio. The show streams as always, 1pm on http://www.artxfm.com. Sean is the author of three books of poetry Interstitial (Blazevox, 2012), The Imagined Field (Paper Kite, 2010), and Hibernaculum (Slash Pine Press, 2013); he is also a journalist and non-fiction writer. You can read about his recent pubs and books here.

Sean read at Holler Poets last week, Speak Social last fall, Chicago, Chattanooga, Pittsburg, Raleigh, and elsewhere in the last sixth months. He’s hard-working poet, father, and educator with a profound interest in and reverence for his literary idols.

We will talk about his new book, his recent experience graduating from Warren Wilson’s MFA in creative writing, and hear poems old and new. I’ll also be announcing upcoming regional and local contests, readings, and other opportunities to get involved with literary culture in Louisville, KY and nearby!

literature on the (web) radio

Dear readers,

Installment seven of KLL radio will be live today at 1pm! Thanks to all the great writers, editors, and promoters who’ve joined me to talk literature. This week I’ve yet to find a guest, but if no one surfaces by 1pm (feel free yo message me if you’re a writer who’s free today!) the show will go on. Ill be playing fun tunes, reading pieces by local writers and playing spoken word performances from the web. Either way, it’ll be fun and literary!
