Join me for the inaugural conversation with Julie Marie Wade, a joyful, completely unwieldy, too-long poetry conversation. We nerd out, delve deep, and Virgo about two of our favorite Poems.
Julie’s pick is the poem “Tenue at Forty” is from the debut collection Bardo by Suzanne Paola. Yael’s pick is “Two Miles Away” by Margaret Atwood from her collection Two-Headed Poems.

The Conversation

Julie’s latest publication is “Fugue: An Aural History.”  You can find Julie online at JulieMarieWade.com
