interview updates

My favorite interview is by Profesora Elisabetta Marino, from the University of Rome, Tor Vergata which I did in Italian for the academic cultural magazine El Ghibli. sulla scrittura dell io attraverso la poesia: un intervista a nick carbo: Here.

Here's an interview with Rommel, a kindly undergraduate at SFSU who had to do a big web project on a contemporary poet. It seems he forgot to use his spell check and grammar check before posting to the web. Here.

Almost forgot about this one from National Public Radio in their Intersections program of the Morning Edition show. You can download and hear the interview as well as see links to other resources. Here.

Here's a "Conversation" with me and the fab fiction writer M. Evelina Galang which was conducted by Rocio Davis for the Filipino American Literature issue of the academic journal MELUS. Here.

A nice interview with the famous Ivy Alvarez done in Dublin, Ireland for the Aussy lit mag CORDITE: Here.
