Re-read: Kaveh Akbar

You’d be hard press to argue that any poet has had a better and busier 2016 than Kaveh Akbar: from organizing poetry festivals; publications including Poetry, PANK, and The Georgia Review; winning the Lucile Medwick Award; to becoming a 2016 Ruth Lilly and Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg Poetry Fellow.  Kaveh is also one of the best interviewers in contemporary writing.  Divedapper hosts a weekly conversation with some of the finest voices in poetry today. Nate Marshall, Franny Choi,  Frank Bidart, and the late Max Ritvo are just a few names that have been in conversation with Kaveh.
