“Sometimes I feel as if I have a volcano of words and they need to just come out; and some of them can burn people or can burn myself but I feel whatever it is inside me… I want to express it in writing.”

Episode 8: Author & poet Isabel del Río

AuthorIsabel del Río talks about her recent poetry book The Moon at the end of my street, the process of writing, and shares some of her poetry.
