Howard Robertson - Portrait

The Bricolage of Kotagaeshi – Howard W. Robertson

Howard W. Robertson, rebelling against the expectations of his upbringing in a rural Oregon mill town, became a poet. In this podcast, Robertson talks with Writers Program curator Matt Briggs about teaching himself how to type and discovering a need to write poetry and stories along the way. You’ll also hear an excerpt from his live reading at Jack Straw Productions featuring unpublished work and a poem from his new book The Bricolage of Kotagaeshi.
