The Cringers presnt:
The Process

Nathanael Stolte, Julio Valentin and Misty Khan-Becerra focus on the processes poets use in their craft. Join us as we explore the various interpretations poets experience and the process by with muse meets paper making poetry. In one hour installments, our guest will read a poem, tell us the secrets of its inception, and discuss the process. We will then hear the poem again with our new ears. With any luck we will be able to hear several poems per episode. Join us as we pick the minds of poets and probe their imagination.

11/17/16 Justin Karcher
For their first ever broadcast, The Cringers invite Justin Karcher to come share in his creative process. Julio, Nathanael and Justin delve into topics of popular perceptions of poets and poetry. They graze over the election and what this will mean for art in general. Justin reads a new poem of his and takes us through the process by which he crafted it. Justin also takes us through his process for an unwritten poem still in the conceptual stage. Join The Cringers for this rare look into the mind of a poetic genius.
