Why can a person write a "proficient sort of poem" while in an MFA program? What is the first consideration for selecting an MFA program? When might conferences or a low-residency MFA programs be better for some people than traditional MFA programs. Why should one focus on the writing versus the employment opportunities that follow when considering getting an MFA? What is the importance of metaphor for a poem? Listen in:

Belinda Subraman Presents: David Biespiel: Poet, Writer-In-Residence, Editor of Poetry Northwest:

And here is a quote from the interview:

"I also think that there is an element in diving that is similar to poems in this way. When divers enter the water, one of the things they are trying to accomplish is a splashless entry. A large splash in diving, too much splash in diving would be more than a thimble worth of water. And there's a way in which you see the presence of the diver, off the diving board, in the air, through performance, in a kind of extremis for 1.3 seconds and then they enter the water, and then they're not there."
