Podcast with Poet David Stones

David Stones is a poet based in Stratford Ontario. His poems have been published internationally and won awards.

We recorded this podcast prior to a performance in Stratford, but Stones is performing at the Hamilton Fringe Festival, from July 19 – 28, in “Infinite Sequels.”

In a review of the show in The London Free Press Joe Belanger wrote that “‘Infinite Sequels’ is a brilliant, beautiful piece of theatre. Stone recites his poignant poetry with mostly subtle gesture, movement and animated face, asking us to face moments and questions about our lives we may not have even recognized.”

Stones is accompanied by a violinist in the show, which ads an imaginative aspect to his words.

In our conversation Stones admits his love of poetry goes back to his youth confessing that it was only later in life, after his career and kids were no longer a pressing concern, that he found the freedom to truly hone his work and share it publicly.

He talks about his creative process and his inspiration: Dylan Thomas and Leonard Cohen to name a few. Stones also shares his thoughts on the intersection of poetry and social media.
