J. L. Williams is a poet fascinated by the possiblility of metamorphoses, whether it be witnessed in the natural world or experienced in one's own life. Her first collection Condition of Fire (Shearsman) was inspired by Ovid, and in her new collection Locust and Marlin (Shearsman) she returns to the theme of change, albeit from a fresh perspective. In our latest podcast, she talks to us about the nature of stone, the poetry of locusts, and just how spiritual she is.
