Most of the writers featured in this first series are poets with a sprinkling of fiction/non-fiction writers. Though taped in authors’ kitchens, there isn’t a clear link between their work and the location.

*Anyone in the LA area care to loan me their video camera for a few hours? I’m very trustworthy.
