Swarthmore English Literature Professor, Nathalie Anderson, was recently interviewed by the Mad Poets Blog, a site maintained by the Mad Poets Society. In the far-ranging interview Anderson offers insights into her published work, and shares her enthusiasm for public readings. She also exposes some of her literary influences, and offers advice to poets pursuing fellowships, grants, and publishing contracts.
Professor Anderson teaches courses in Victorian, Modern, and Contemporary Poetry and directs the Program in Creative Writing for Swarthmore's Department of English Literature. She is also a poet and librettist.
