PODCAST: Joseph Woods in conversation with Irene De Angelis

Episode 47 of the Irish Itinerary Podcast is now live.

In his conversation with Irene De Angelis, Joseph Woods discusses his time as director of Poetry Ireland; his nomadic life and how linguistic and self-chosen exile helped him find his voice as a poet; his various poetry volumes and their connections to people and places; his work with the Mashonaland Irish Association while living in Harare, Zimbabwe; and his life as a jobbing writer and how 90 percent of the work is showing up. He also talks about his current PhD project, a work based on the life of Maurice Collis, and his forthcoming poetry collection.  (https://www.efacis.eu/podcast)
