On this edition of HoCoPoLitSo’s The Writing Life, Roland Flint, current Maryland Poet Laureate, hosts past poets laureate Lucille Clifton, Linda Pastan and Reed Whittemore. All friends, the poets discuss the role and possibilities of the poet laureate, as well as the craft of writing poetry, in a half-hour of good conversation and great poetry. Flint reads “Rosalind October,” “2-26-91,” and “Pamela.” Pastan reads “Rachel,” “Fame,” and “The Almanac of Last Things.” Reed Whittemore reads “Present,” “The Girl in the Next Room,” and “Today.” Clifton reads “Blake,” “Hag Riding,” and “Telling Our Stories.” Recorded in 1999. Only Pastan is still alive to continue writing. For more information about the Howard County Poetry and Literature Society, visit www.hocopolitso.org.
