Iron Horse Literary Review just released their fantastic April issue and it’s chock full of gorgeous poems for National Poetry Month. I was asked to contribute some photos and a description of my work space. It was an honor and a lot of fun to justify my junk-collecting.
Here are a couple of the pictures, but you can read the whole piece in the new issue of Iron Horse Literary Review.
It is especially fun to see this issue coming out now, since I’ve been on the road for the past 6 weeks doing field research for my new work-in-progress. I’ll pop into my brick and mortar house and every now and again, but most of my writing and living for the next few months is in my 2002 Coachmen class c rv, which I think of as a Baba Yaga house in rubber chicken feet. I love it in here, but I do sometimes miss those shelves full of inspirations. Though I have to say, the backroads, mountain passes, and eccentrics I meet along the way (one campground host walked around with a pet crow on his shoulder all day and did NOT want to talk about it) are pretty splendid muses.
