NO SOONER THE WORD THAN THE FICTION

Turn Around When Possible

every-day-poetsI had an e-mail this morning from Oonagh Joslin of Every Day Poets to tell me that “Professionalism” was the most read poem there during the month of August, and would I like to be interviewed? Well, that’s as close to a definition of a no-brainer as I’m likely to come across, so of course I said yes. So there it is. I am going to be interviewed about my poetry. I repeat, I am going to be interviewed about my poetry.

This journey is going in all sorts of directions that the satnav never predicted.

  1. Having never been interviewed for a magazine, I can only guess how much it rocks. My theory is “a lot” : )

    Too right. I am very excited about this. Just a bit weirded out that it’s for my poetry.

  3. That’s awesome news, man. I find myself giving a lot of time to my own poetry now. I am also spending a lot of time at EveryDay Poets and specifically remember your poem.

    Great job!

    Thanks, Barry!

  5. It is a bit weird. I’ve tended to think of you as mostly writing short stories and only dipping into poetry occasionally.

    Well, that’s what I’ve always thought of myself as. Anyway, I finished answering the interview questions today and showed it to the wife. She pronounced it “pretentious”.

  7. Pretentious? Nah! It’s a good interview! 🙂
