TURNING TO FICTION
Interview with American poet Donna Masini
Donna Masini, American poet based in New York, reads from her book "Turning to Fiction" and discusses her work and its context in the contemporary world. Donna and I were both resident for 6 weeks at the amazing and generously funded research facility, the Civitella Ranieri Centre in Umbertide, Italy during September/October 2011. I took the chance to interview not just Donna but other writers and artists resident there as well. Amongst other things, Donna Masini discussed her teaching methods, and I found these interesting as they had many parallels with the teaching of composition.
