MEET THE PRESS: January Gill O’Neil in Conversation with Alison Meyers of Cave Canem
The kind folks at Best American Poetry published my conversation with Alison Meyers, Executive Director of the Cave Canem Foundation, and me. My thanks to Alison, and to Nin Andrews for all her help.
I attended the second Cave Canem retreat in 1997, shortly after its founding in 1996. The impressive part of the interview, for me, is the list of milestones since 1996. So many honors and accolades since then. Alison has been a huge part of the organizations success.
If anything, read the interview to find out how Cave Canen got its name.
