Brief Biography: Zenobia Frost is an Australian writer and editor whose debut poetry collection, The Voyage, was released in 2009.

Geosi Gyasi: The stage is constantly in motion; performing or reading poetry. How do you translate the static, tactile pages to the stage?

Zenobia Frost: I aim to choose poems that have a distinct conversational voice or rhythm. It’s true that some poems live in and on the page — they need time and rereading to be absorbed. For me, the best performative poems marry rhythm with semantic resonance. Musicality and meaning.

The rest of the interview will be available in my forthcoming book (2016) by Lamar University Literary Press.
