A really interesting poetry blog – enjoyed this interview with Rachael Boast.
As a poet, if you cooperate with language you end up ‘saying things you didn’t know you were thinking.’ So claims the multi-award-winning poet Rachael Boast, in this interview with Suzannah V. Evans.

Rachael reads three of her poems at the end: ‘Snow’, ‘Ranchera’ and ‘Attic’.
