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.)
This video archive is quite an accomplishment. So glad to “meet” these people and hear the thoughts of poets.
Many thanks for this!
Francine brings a breath of truth throughout the whole community. “Who she is” is a gift to us all.
Thanks for the lovely chance to see & hear a poet who has touched me through the written word.
What a great piece – Francine is so generous in giving of herself in the interview. Congratulations to all involved.
