Poet’s Table

with Austin Smith

Fridays at 9:30AM

Poets’ Table is a show devoted to discovering the world of poetry. Each episode is focused on one poet, as host Austin Smith discusses their life and their work.

The show also offers tips on writing poems of our own. The idea is to sit down at the table every Friday morning, have another cup of coffee, and enjoy the work of a great poet, guided by a teacher and practitioner of the craft.
