You Publish Too Much!: A Room 220 Interview with Bill Zavatsky
by Michael Allen Zell for Room 220
Bill Zavatsky is a New York poet who has had two of his own books published since 1975. Why so few? He’s been busy running SUN press and magazine for fifteen years, translating Surrealist poets, teaching, and playing jazz piano. Zavatsky graciously took time to answer a few questions last week in advance of the next Black Widow Salon at Crescent City Books (230 Chartres St.), at which he will be the featured guest.
