(Audio) Mimi Khalvati Interview: Poetry as Discovery

by Mark McGuinness on 6 July, 2018

I’ve just released an interview with Mimi Khalvati on my 21st Century Creative podcast, where she reads some of her poems and talks about her creative process.

My own poetry has benefitted hugely from Mimi’s teaching and feedback over many years, so I’m delighted to feature her on the podcast. She has a lot of wise and interesting things to say about poetry and creativity, and about the surprisingly creative potential of your critical faculty.

The poems Mimi reads in the interview are all from her latest book, The Very Selected Mimi Khalvati, published by smith|doorstop – a distillation of her collections from Carcanet, and a great place to start exploring her poetry.

My podcast features leading creators from the arts and creative industries. Mimi’s interview is part of Season 2 of the show – you can find all the episodes on iTunes or on my website.
