A Conversation with Matt Donovan

On September 18, 2008, the Department of English and the Master of Fine Arts Program in Creative Writing at Virginia Commonwealth University awarded the Eleventh Annual Levis Reading Prize to Matt Donovan for Vellum, his first book of poems. The next day, in a session transcribed here, Donovan answered questions about his work and process for VCU English faculty and graduate students.
