20 Years of RVA Magazine! A Chat with S. Preston Duncan

by | May 22, 2024 | COMMUNITY, PODCASTS

As we dive into the 20-year journey of RVA Magazine, it made sense to document it somehow — so I started this laid back, insightful, and hopefully entertaining, podcast series. It’s a chance for me to catch up with old friends who’ve shaped the magazine from the start, sharing laughs and stories about the unexpected paths we’ve navigated along the way.

Kicking off the series is none other than S. Preston Duncan, a close friend and a steadfast contributor, who’s now making waves as a celebrated poet on the international stage, with works featured in renowned literary publications globally.

We sat down and took it from the top, reminiscing and exploring our journey.

And speaking of journeys, here’s a shoutout to Preston’s upcoming book, Blood Alluvium, hitting the shelves this September courtesy of Parlyaree Press. Curious about more of Preston’s poetic adventures? Swing by his collection HERE to get the full scoop.
