"Unknown Words" is a bi-monthly podcast dedicated to highlighting the work of unpublished or lesser known writers. Each episode, Matthew reads a either a short story, creative non-fiction, or works of poetry then interviews the writer to gain some insight into the work's composition and just maybe that of the author's.

Jeanne Henry is the show's first female poet, and today we hear seven of her poems. On display is her ability to make the ordinary angles and objects of cities conscious and aware and judging. Her poetry is very rooted in its sense of place; it could be mistaken for a sense of doom, but the people in her poems seem aware of where they are and their dilemmas, and are striving to live beyond them. 

Find more of Jeanne's work at: www.papermaw.wordpress.com

Her poetry has appeared in Prick of the Spindle, Banango Street, Brickplight, Found Poetry Review, and the Josephine Quarterly among others. 

 

Conversation Topics: NYC, New York, poetry, poems, writing, storytelling, moving, California, weather, mental illness, family, conversation, interview, art, reading, literature.
