The Blood-Jet Writing Hour is a podcast that spotlights vibrant and diverse voices from the literary world, including poetry, fiction, comics, young adult literature and non-fiction. 

Poets, writers and artists such as, Jayne Cortez, Yumi Sakugawa,  Kim Addonizio, Karen Tei Yamashita, Barbara Jane Reyes, Craig Santos Perez, Tamiko Beyer, MariNaomi, Duriel Harris, Kate Bernheimer, Diane Wakoski, John Murillo, Ray Gonzalez, Lee Herrick, and many more have been interviewed on the show.  The Blood-Jet Writing Hour has also been featured on The Poetry Foundation's Harriet Blog.

We're currently on our 124th show, and we want to keep going!  Your donations will go towards file hosting fees, audio and production costs,  a new and improved website, new promotional merchandise (postcards and business cards) and more.

Thank you so much for your support!
