Transposition is Exposition Review’s very own free literary podcast, featuring conversations on poetry, fiction, nonfiction, stage, screen, art, and experimental readings alongside performances from our contributors and interviews with host Laura Rensing as our guide.
Explore the transformations of the work in Exposition Review: from the inception of an idea to its execution and publication; from writing something down to reading it aloud. Transposition is a unique opportunity to delve into the craft of writing, the unique backgrounds of our contributors, and is just another reason that Exposition Review is more than a lit journal.
