Poetry prize recipients Carolyn Forché and Ali Cobby Eckermann speak with Richard Deming about poetry's capacity to give voice to the local, the personal, and the political in a globalized world.

Richard Deming is a poet and a theorist whose work explores the intersections of poetry, philosophy, and visual culture. His first collection of poems, Let’s Not Call It Consequence, received the 2009 Norma Farber Award from the Poetry Society of America. His new book of poems, Day for Night, appeared in 2016. His new critical study, Everyday Domain: The Ordinary in Art, Film, Literature, and Philosophy, is forthcoming from Cornell University Press. He teaches at Yale University where he is the Director of Creative Writing.
