Where Writers Write: Carol Guess

Guess CoverCarol Guess, author of the ingenious poetry collection  Doll Studies: Forensics, writes about writing: “In fact I don’t like thinking of writing as writing, and I don’t believe really in the hype about rules, about how and who, about advice, about try this or that. I think some people have very loud radios, and I’m one of them, and if we don’t record the songs in our heads, we go crazy. If you don’t walk a dog, it chews up your shoes; it barks like a mad thing; it jumps all over the furniture. I mean the radio is a dog, too, this feral thing we try to tame.” More here; buy her wonderful book here.
