HFR contributor Keith Montesano has just launched the continuation of the First Book Interview series with poet Matthew Guenette. Keith wanted to continue the series started by Kate Greenstreet because the interviews were always informative and inspiring, sometimes hilarious, and great reads overall.

There will be a new interview every two weeks. Poets lined up in the upcoming weeks and months are: Paul Guest, Jason Bredle, Mark Wunderlich, Sandra Beasley, James Allen Hall, Jennifer Chang, Alison Pelegrin, Brian Barker, Jericho Brown, Dan Albergotti, and more.

Head on over to check out the interviews and to support emerging poets. And feel free to get in touch with Keith through his blog to make interviewee recommendations.
