"[Los Angeles is] part of an international community. The city has allowed tremendous growth for me, in terms of its cultural outlets, from libraries, great cinema, dance, orchestra, interesting mixes of people.... I see myself as a global citizen and a global writer." Will Alexander, winner of the 2016 Jackson Poetry Prize awarded annually by Poets & Writers, talks about the influence the city of Los Angeles has had on his relationship with language and writing.
