Krystal Languell : part four

What poets changed the way you thought about writing?

I am so resistant to change that the impact of certain poets and teachers takes years for me to absorb. It’s a slow process. Workshops I’ve taken with Hoa Nguyen, Ronaldo V. Wilson, and Evie Shockley (all through The Millay Colony) have had a lasting impact on me. Most fundamentally, Ronaldo’s engagement with video loosened my grip on the page in a way I’m still reckoning with. I have some footage of a rollerblading flash mob in Paris I have yet to do something with, and I’m interested in the consequences of the disruption when poets cross genre boundaries or mix media.
