Alabama Arts Radio Podcast for May 20th 2008

Jeanie Thompson, executive director of the Alabama Writers’ Forum, interviews two writers who participated in the 3rd Annual Alabama Book Festival on April 19. Kate Gale, founding editor of Red Hen Press of Los Angeles, California, and Richard Goodman, author of French Dirt and The Soul of Creative Writing, also taught writing techniques and discussed publishing on April 18 at the inaugural creative writing workshop open to the general public as part of the Festival outreach. Dr. Gale is a poet (Fishers of Men, Selling the Hammock, Mating Season) novelist, and librettist. She maintains a busy teaching schedule in the Los Angeles area, manages Red Hen Press – one of the top selling poetry/prose independent presses in California – and pursues her own writing. Mr. Goodman teaches in the Spalding University Brief Residency MFA Writing Program in Louisville, KY. He lives in New York, NY. Dr. Gale read in the poetry venue, dubbed Poetry SouthWest, for the cross fertilization of Southern and Western writers. Richard Goodman read from his two books and discussed writing with festival-goers.
