Today we are joined by José Olivarez. José is an award-winning poet and is also an educator, developing writing courses and poetry workshops. He recently released his debut book of poetry Citizen Illegal, which is fantastic and which pulls the reader into the liminal and hyphenated spaces José has inhabited growing up in Chicago as the son Mexican immigrants to the US.

In our conversation we talk about the power of poetry both in and out of formal poems, we discuss poetry’s relation to the good, the true, and the beautiful, and José even graciously performs one my favorite poems from his book.

José Olivarez is a poet living and working in Chicago, Illinois, and is also co-host of one of my all-time favorite podcasts, The Poetry Gods. In our wide-ranging conversation we talked about how The Poetry Gods came to be, toxic masculinity in the poetry world, and how discovering poetry allowed José to find his artistic voice. In the second segment, we talked about beginnings and endings.

(Conversation recorded January 1, 2017.)
