Beginning this week, we welcome Laynie Brown to the Les Figues blog. Laynie is the author of seven books of poetry, most recently The Scented Fox (Wave Books, 2007), winner of the National Poetry Series. Forthcoming are two collections The Desires of Letters and Roseate, Points of Gold. She is currently developing a new poetry-in-the-schools program for The Poetry Center at University of Arizona in Tucson.
Laynie will be posting from a project in which she interviews writers about their poetics and practice. Her results mix video and text in a blend of critical and creative engagements. I've seen a sneak-peek of post #1, and it's really really good. But don't just take my word for it—check back here tomorrow and see for yourself.
