  1. A wonderful, pithy interview, worth listening to carefully, several times. We are fortunate to have such a strong writer in our midst, and even more fortunate to have her now editing Frogpond.

    For the record, where Francine mentions Sister Mary Thomas Eulert, she means Sister Mary Thomas Eulberg. (Don Eulert was the coeditor of American Haiku magazine, the first English-language haiku journal.)

  2. This video archive is quite an accomplishment. So glad to “meet” these people and hear the thoughts of poets.

  3. Francine brings a breath of truth throughout the whole community. “Who she is” is a gift to us all.
