Wendy Brown-Baez has had a great start to National Poetry Month. She recently learned she is the recipient of a 2012 Minnesota State Arts Board grant to bring writing workshops into 12 non-profits. It is a dream come true for her that she has worked towards for years!
She had an art opening at Tarnish and Gold Gallery this week.She hand stitched scrolls out of fabric and decorated them with found objects to display poems in tandem with Ashley Dull's paintings of natural landscapes. http://tarnishandgold.wordpress.com
She is also participating in a blog tour with other poets called Couplets with interviews and guest bloggers on her blog. I was the first to be featured there this month. I look forward to seeing the other writers and artists who are included in the series.
In this interview, I discuss the role of family in my poetry, which I don't normally talk about, as well as several of my upcoming projects, the future of poetry, and even a little about wars with newts and salamanders. Thanks to Wendy for a great set of questions.
