The Poet-Rebel

One of the great things about living in the city is the network of writers and literary folks I’ve had the privilege of meeting. In a case of I know someone who knows someone, I was led to the brilliant, unpredictable, and fascinating poet Eileen Myles. I had the honor of interviewing her for my literary website of choice, Vol. 1 Brooklyn.

Here’s a link to the interview.

My favorite piece of advice of hers is applicable to any artist who crosses genres or mediums: “One relieves the other. Poems are like sweating while you’re working on a novel. A novel gives you something to do while you’re waiting for your poems.”
