I’m excited to announce that a project-in-development is now live! At the Modern Language Studies website, you can find our new fiction and poetry podcast, The Sidebar. For our inaugural episode, I met the poet, editor, and critic BK Fischer at the New York Public Library. Fischer and I talked about her poems in MLS, which perform a feminist remix of Roland Barthes’ A Lover’s Discourse.
So why is this podcast called The Sidebar? Each episode will feature a conversation with a poet, fiction writer, translator, etc. who has been published in Modern Language Studies. So our discussions are a sidebar to the work in each issue.
And not to be outdone, the graphic design of the website . . . hosts the podcast in the sidebar! Click here to listen to The Sidebar.
