Poet Kathryn Fry reads a number of poems from her latest poetry collection Green Point Bearings and talks about the book’s inspiration, how many of the poems came about and how the collection came together, her interest in the natural world, on mindfulness and the power of paying attention, on Ekphrasis and the paintings of Margaret Olly, the notion of ‘grace from loss’ and Wendy Whiteley’s secret garden, on her mentorship with Brook Emery, what she’s currently reading and inspired by, and much more.
Here are links to a few of the things we spoke about:
