This week’s show features an audio interview with Ted Kooser, U.S. Poet Laureate from 2004-2006, and author of the previously reviewed book “The Poetry Home Repair Manual : Practical Advice for Beginning Poets“.
With its release, Ted has created the most influential item to ever change the way I think about writing poetry. I highly recommend reading his book.
His simple prodding to become a better observer of life around you is a key factor to any of us becoming better poets. This act alone gives us a wealth of material and thoughts to create in-depth and thought-provoking poetry.

As, always I would love to hear your thoughts on this conversation and what you personally got out of this podcast or from reading this book.
