Ploughshares interviews Mary Biddinger

Victoria Chang of Ploughshares interviews Mary Biddinger, the Series Editor for the Akron Series in Poetry.

"Do you have a future vision of the Series?  Is there a commitment from Akron that it will go on for a while?
The University of Akron has been very supportive of the Series, and I believe we have a healthy future. Along with collaborator John Gallaher, I recently started the Akron Series in Contemporary Poetics at The University of Akron Press, which publishes collections of essays, so our poetry branch is growing steadily."
I've always had a soft spot for Ploughshares, a literary zine founded in a bar (the Plough & Stars, in Cambridge.)  Now, that's the way I'd say literary 'zines should be founded.
