For National Poetry Month, I chat with poet and novelist Vernon Wildy in episode 54 of Working Title podcast. He discusses using this month each year to hone his craft of free verse by trying other forms of poetry, such as sonnets.
For him, poetry is self-discovery, and his influences range from hip-hop to poets like Paul Laurence Dunbar and Shann Palmer. He also writes contemporary romance. His new novel is Death to the Nice Guy, which we cover and so much more.
Plus he reads a couple of his poems.
