Highly Recommended: 12th January, 2013.

Some great resources here on poetry, theatre, ezines as well as news on poetry festivals and a blog that will read, interview and review the best of your work.


A report from the Irish Times on the 2012 Irish Theatre Awards:

Most of the people nominated are interviewed at length in the Rise Theatre Productions free online podcasts. Join the Rise group here and gain links to each of Aonghus Og McAnally's interviews via iTunes.  Each interview is approximately 50 minutes long and the series is now 'more popular than BBC Radio's The Archers'.

A fifteen minute video on Frank O'Hara here. Wonderful stuff:

Free to download all issues of  ESC Zine are available here:

The Poetry Centre at San Francisco State University has an online archive of 1950s American poets reading their work.

Allen Ginsberg, Lawrence Ferlinghetti also among those included.
Thanks to the Landis Everson Group page, run by Ben Mazer for this:
