Wow, time has flown by since I posted anything new to this site. The pandemic has affected everyone in some way; for me, poetry is both an embrace of the “now” and an escape from it, so I have only been able to write in spurts. When Superstition Review approached me in late spring of this year and asked if I would be willing to return to the journal’s Author’s Talk podcast to talk about, well, whatever I wanted to, basically, I was thrilled.

I had participated in my first Author’s Talk a few years ago, so it was an honor to be invited back. Coming up with content and a focus for the talk proved to be an inspiring (if challenging) exercise, prompting me to take a look at ways I’ve dealt with writer’s block in the past and offer a few tips from my own experience. In the process of working on my talk, I even ended up excavating and reworking an old poem in the process — an added bonus! The interview went live on May 19, but the journal is currently having a problem with its blog site (they say they are working on the issue, so if/when they fix it, I will add a link to the journal site.) Meanwhile, I decided to upload the audio here. Enjoy!
