The Habit Podcast: Rachel Donahue on Place & Poetry


This week on The Habit Podcast, Jonathan Rogers talks with poet and co-founder of Bandersnatch Books, Rachel Donahue.

After years overseas, Rachel Donahue settled into life on a property that had been in her husband’s family for generations. Paying attention to that piece of land transformed her poetry. Beyond Chittering Cottage is a collection of the poems that grew out of that new attentiveness.

In this episode, Rachel and Jonathan Rogers talk about stewardship, place, and writerly friendship.
