What is the In Conversation With series?

In Conversation is a fortnightly podcast series with the occasional accompanying video which gives you, lovely readers, even more choice on how to hear what your favourite authors have to say and makes it more accessible to all of you.

The third writer in our series is the wonderful Jackson, a West Australian poet who has published two collections of work, started up an online poetry magazine and was responsible for helping to set up the Perth Poetry Club. She talked to us about her experience of being a poet, the pitfalls and surprises and what inspires. Apparently anything Irish or surreal does.
