Poetry, Writing, & Identity w. Gianmarco Visconti

Ep. 94

Poet Gianmarco Visconti joins us to discuss his work as a writer on a collision course with his audience.

We go over what makes poetry an engaging form to work with, how obscuring meaning can illuminate one’s identity, and what do to with your hands whilst reading poems standing up.
