Kiki Petrosino: Louisville's Rising Poet

Kiki Petrosino is poet to watch. In her early 30s, she's already published a highly-acclaimed first collection, "Fort Red Border" (Sarabande) and a chapbook, "The Dark is Here" (Forkift Ink).

A professor the University of Louisville, her poems have appeared, or are forthcoming, in The New York Times, Tin House, Jubilat, Gulf Coast, Harvard Review, and elsewhere. Her latest collection of poems will be released from Sarabande in 2013.

She spoke about the art of poetry — reading it, writing it, loving it — with WFPL's Jonathan Bastian.
