The Writers Divine Den, PLV Radio Network

 

Airing October 21st-27th, I was interviewed on The Writers Divine Den with Jackie VanCampen.

She asks the question, "What if you could see below the surface with the eyes of the heart?" Join us on a beautiful journey into the soul of humanity as we discover those inklings that touch our hearts. I share some heart-moving poetry and invite you to look within.  We discuss our craft and purpose as writers.

Hot Springs Hot Spots Magazine

 

In this article, "Periscope Heart: The Revelatory Poetry of Kai Coggin" Jim Miller and Jeremy Rodgers, tap into me as a Hot Springs poet.  Jim tells a bit about the poetic history of Hot Springs, my Words and Wine Dult Creative Writing Classes, and dives into the pages and poems of PERISCOPE HEART.   This is a special article for me, because it was circulated in Hot Springs, my home. It was so surreal walking into places aroud town and people recognizing me from the article and asking me to autograph it!

East London News

 

I have gone GLOBAL. Oh my. In this interview entitled “Poetry speaks when otherwise there is silence,” London freelance journalist Emdad Rahman asks me about what is most dear to my heart; teaching the youth the importance of their voice.  He asks about what inspires me to write, about my creative writing classes, how they are set-up, what motivates them, and what kind of impact I would like to make as a writer.  Rahman then graciously reviews PERISCOPE HEART, after reading his personally signed copy.  So grateful.

The Literary Librarian

 

After Hurricane Harvey struck Houston, I wrote a poem for my city called "hoUSton" and it was shared by The Weather Channel. This interview came as a result of writing that meaningful poem.

Story in the Arkansas Times about the 30th Anniversary of Wednesday Night Poetry, and me taking over as the new host. This is the longest running poetry series in the country. It is a tremendous honor for me to bring new energy while upholding this legacy of poetry in Hot Springs.
