Episode 20: Kelli Allen

Kelli Allen is probably the most traveled, and least likely to be pinned down, writer we’ve had on the Podcast. She’s a four-time Pushcart Prize nominee and she’s won awards for both poetry & prose. She’s currently a professor at Lindenwood University, where’s she’s also the poetry editor for The Lindenwood Review.

Brad caught up with her at Etchings Fest, a free afternoon of workshops sponsored by Etchings Press.

Her chapbook Some Animals is available from Etchings Press, the student-run publisher of the University of Indianapolis Department of English, and Metonymy Media.
