THE WRITTEN WORD: Interviewing David Whyte

The cover of David Whyte's new book: "THE THREE MARRIAGES: Reimagining Work, Self and Relationship."

David Whyte defies pigeonholing. Even to classify him under the Bluestocking department “The Written Word” feels not quite spot on because he defines himself as much through the spoken word.

I had the good fortune to interview this poet/philosopher/naturalist recently; the story appears tomorrow in the Books section of The Sunday Denver Post. If you don’t get the paper, you might Google
Denver Post David Whyte by Colleen Smith
and you should find the piece. The Post’s website can sometimes prove difficult to navigate.

Also, go to www.davidwhyte.com for more about David Whyte’s books, audio recordings, tours, speaking engagements. If you Google him, you will find some wonderful footage. I urge you to listen to this prophet: In his marvelous Yorkshire accent, he masterfully articulates messages of wisdom, truth, and self-compassion for artists and all seeking to live artfully.
