Show Notes

I sat down last spring with Darlene Young, a poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction writer who teaches in the English Department at BYU. We spoke about her two volumes of published poems, Homespun and Angel Feathers (2019) and Here (2023). We also talked about the relationship between poetry and faith, bringing humor to sacred things, and finding a distinctive voice as a poet and as a devoutly religious person.
