Line / Break With Natalie Scenters-Zapico

“Talking about poetry, especially in the U.S. context, you’re treated like you’re the village fool,” says Natalie Scenters-Zapico about identifying as a poet in this episode of Line /Break with host Laura Buccieri. “Usually, if we learn anything the fool is the one that carries most of the wisdom.” Scenters-Zapico is the author of Lima :: Limón (Copper Canyon Press, 2019), which was included on the international shortlist for the 2020 Griffin Poetry Prize.
