Meet The Poetry Project Oral History Project!

We are very excited to announce the recent launch of The Poetry Project Oral History Project! The Poetry Project staff and volunteer Archivist Will Edmiston have spent the past year setting the framework and conducting interviews for the Oral History Project. The Oral History Project’s goal is to record, collect and make accessible oral history interviews with past Poetry Project administrators and other poets and writers who have been affiliated with The Poetry Project since its founding in 1966. Currently the collection consists of 3 interviews — Ron Padgett, Anne Waldman and Michael Allen — but the team plans to add many more as interviews are recorded.
