 American Distinguished Professor of Physics Dr. Bill Colson and renowned Welsh poet Peter Thabit Jones in an informal conversation on science and poetry with American Patricia Holt.

What is it like to be a poet? What is it like to be a physicist. Are there similarities in the vocations, in the explorations? In an attempt to build bridges between physics and poetry, Dr. Bill Colson and Peter Thabit Jones discuss their approaches and their experiences with Patricia Holt.

This conversation, which is based on the publication of a 2016 interview booklet from The Seventh Quarry Press (UK) involving an interview Patricia did with Bill and Peter, took place at Dudley Library at the Naval Postgraduate School, in the Department of Physics, Monterey, in August 2016 and it was a great success. It will take place in other parts of America and in the UK in 2017.
