An Interview with David Daniel
In September of 2004, David Wojahn and Blackbird editor Gregory Donovan met with David Daniel in the Blackbird offices at Virginia Commonwealth University. In the first part of the conversation, Daniel, recipient of the Seventh Annual Levis Reading Prize for his collection Seven-Star Bird, spoke primarily about the making of the book and its poems. In the second part, the focus shifted to his role as poetry editor at Ploughshares and how that experience has influenced his own writing.
