Rishi Dastidar and I chat about life, poetry, writing and poets always having another job. Rishi gives advice on how to be a poet, embracing Insta poets and whether last lines are harder than first lines, or second books harder than first books; and why we love lists and why we need to pay more attention to verbs.

He is open to offers from companies seeking a Chief Poetry Officer.

A fascinating and wide ranging chat from this leading British poet.
