New Book of Poems: Crater & Tower

Duck Lake Books is publishing tomorrow a wonderful new book by Cheryl J. Fish, Crater & Tower.

In 2010, Fish attended the Pulse Gathering of Scientists at Mount St. Helen’s Volcanic National Monument where in 1980 the crater erupted blowing more than 1,000 feetfrom the mountain top.

This accomplished poet and scholar, having witnessed the terrifying events of September 11, 2001 from a few blocks away as a resident and professor at a nearby community college, melded the “smoke and ash at both places, fragments of bone and rock,shock and death” (1) into the poems in Crater & Tower.

On Writing at Home in These Troubled Times

I have been trying to reorient myself to writing alone at home.  I am a writer who attends groups and writes in coffee shops, and I can’t now with the sequestering going on.  One suggestion I got was to establish a regular place to write at home.  Do any of you writers have other suggestions?red framed eyeglasses on newspapers
