Abstract
Margaret Atwood, an award-winning Canadian poet and novelist, begins the interview by reading her poem “You Begin.” She continues by discussing the oral experience of poetry as well as outlining the distinction between the creative processes of poetry and fiction writing. She goes on to discuss the different relationships she has with her different national audiences and addresses her label as a feminist writer. The interview concludes with a discussion about the public and financial support for the arts in Canada.
