What does it mean to give up a successful legal career at forty to become a writer? How do poets mentor one another? If no one will produce the plays you write, how do you get them on stage? Prize director Michael Kelleher engages Kwame Dawes, Patricia Cornelius, Ishion Hutchinson, and Danielle McLaughlin on how they became writers, how they honed their craft, and how they kept writing in the face of adversity.
Michael Kelleher is a poet and the director of the Windham-Campbell Prizes. His most recent book is Visible Instruments (2017).
