Episode 23: crossing the boundaries of genre

Inside the walls of institutions, writers are often encouraged to choose a specific genre to align ourselves with. While these categories can be useful in some circumstances, this episode is all about breaking those boundaries and developing a more fluid relationship with genre. We talk to Stephen Langois, who typically writes short fiction, about his recent entrance into the practice of poetry.
