Today we close out our Best of No Extra Words series with the best of 2017, which means we are once again headed out on the road for a poetry field trip and we’re bringing some short fiction along for the ride. This episode features all of Episode 79 with a new editor’s commentary.

For those who love books, they become almost human beings standing there in their “Dust Jackets.” By Samantha Dutton, copyright 2015, used with permission. Read Samantha’s bio.

In the first ever installment of our Poet’s Corner segment, Kelli Russell Agodon invited me into her office where we discussed poetry, small presses, and the importance of finding your voice. Visit Kelli’s website or the website for Two Sylvias Press.
