Wanda Coleman - Extended Version of Poetry.LA Interview

This version of our 2013 interview with the late poet, fiction writer, and essayist Wanda Coleman runs some 13 minutes longer than the (still available) version we posted on YouTube in Oct., 2013. Coleman died on 11/22/13, at age 67, after a literary career that spanned over 30 years and included numerous volumes of poetry and fiction, most recently "Jazz & Twelve O'clock Tales" (Godine/Black Sparrow Books, 2008) and "The World Falls Apart" (Pitt Poetry Series, 2011). Her honors include an Emmy in Daytime Drama Writing and a Leonard Marshall Prize. In this 5/11/13 conversation with Mariano Zaro, she discusses her life and work. (Part of the www.Poetry.LA interview series with noted poets of Southern California and beyond.)
