Minisode: Pandemic Poetry
RadioEd is a biweekly podcast created by the DU Newsroom that taps into the University of Denver’s deep pool of bright brains to explore new takes on today’s top stories. See below for a full episode transcript.
In a time of confinement and isolation, how can we express ourselves and connect with the world around us? In this bonus minisode of RadioEd, Colorado Poet Laureate and DU alumnus Bobby LeFebre joins us for a discussion on the role of the arts during crisis. This period of physical distancing has proven both inspirational and challenging for LeFebre, who has had to get creative with the way he presents his work. LeFebre also shares one of his latest, pandemic-inspired poems with RadioEd and describes his creative process, while also offering advice to aspiring poets.
