In Conversation with Adrian Lürssen

By C Culbertson

In this audio installment of Con(verse), CR‘s recurring interview series, C Culbertson sits down with Colorado Prize for Poetry winner Adrian Lürssen to discuss his book, Human Is to Wander. Lürssen reads a few poems from the collection and talks about his inspiration for the work, the biography and personal history of the poems, and how he revisits these poems now—as a reader rather than a writer.

C Culbertson is a third year MFA candidate in poetry at Colorado State University, where they are a Gill-Ronda Fellow in Creative Writing and associate editor at Colorado Review. Their work appears or is forthcoming in Nat. Brut and Posit.
