Poetry and Tings: and Interview with Lyn Patterson

There are things we read, every one in a while, that hit us like a drum. The sound rings clear and beats a strange, rhythmic humming in the chest.

At some point I even had the honor of providing feedback on the… Continue reading The Novelist and Her Pen: an Interview with Mackenzie Belcastro
