Episode 58 – Trish Hopkinson!

Gigantic thanks to Scott C and SAFTAcast for such a fun experience! We covered a lot of ground in this hour long interview…

The SAFTAcast

On your marks. Get set. Podcast. Episode 58 is here! Trish Hopkinson is a busy blogger and poet. But she takes some time to stop by and discuss memorable movie characters, what it’s like to volunteer at Sundance, and how Utah is not a punchline.

To keep up with all of Trish’s efforts, check out Rock Canyon Poets, Provo Poetry, and her personal blog. (And check out this local coverage of the famed “Poetball” machine!)

  1. Enjoyed the Podcast Trish. I especially enjoyed the end where you talked about rebranding poetry for the masses. I think PoetrySuperHighway’s mantra is getting poetry into the hands of as many people as possible. It’s much more eloquently put than that but I’ve spent the week writing a poem for a contest that had a 5:00 deadline. I made it!!! Anyway, I think I’m on ‘EMPTY’ word-wise!There’s not a lot going on here in San Jose poetry-wise either. I participated in a some slams a few years back. It was a young crowd but certainly fun. They were passing out condoms during the event! That kind of young!

    I loved your Poemball machine concept. Brilliant, truly. Anyway, I’m exhausted but I’m seeking out the very thing you’ve created in Utah, a place to be inspired and respected for what I do because it is really, really hard work. I feel like an old-fashioned artisan sometimes. I was trying to sand down a table earlier today and it was HARD, my dogs were staring at me like ‘What the hell are you moaning about?’ Writing brings out the same madness in me sometimes. And like you, I don’t know what I’d do without it now! Happy week-end selfish poet…
