Book Nook: Wild Once and Captured, by Jeff Epton

Aug 14, 2013

Jeff Epton recently released "Wild Once and Captured," a collection of his poetry. Epton's poems radiate a golden glow. Each one is like a highly polished bit of amber. These poems capture and preserve his musings on beauty, determination, and struggle.

Long time WYSO listeners might recall that Epton published a newspaper called The Dayton Voice back in the 1990's. In this interview Epton takes us within his creative process and reveals how some of these poems took shape. He recites a few of them so that we can hear his cadences, his inflections, and experience that spark within the performance arc.
