When I was dreaming up this newsletter, I knew I wanted to build in some one-on-one conversations about writing (or whatever else you want to talk about). I love the Q&A portion at the end of a reading or craft talk. Actually, that might be my favorite part, whether I’m asking the questions or answering them. I always walk away inspired and energized, with plenty of new ideas to squirrel back to my own writing and teaching.
So here we go. This is our first Q&A for paid subscribers, and it’s a feature of this space that will be ongoing.
Parts of For Dear Life will always be free and accessible to all, and sharable with anyone, because that’s important to me. But some things will live behind a paywall, because, well, writing is work—it’s how I keep the lights on, the wi-fi humming, and the kids fed here. (And why do my kids eat so much fruit? So. Much. Fruit. This Q has no satisfactory A, as far as I can tell.)
You can submit a question in the comments, and I’ll respond in upcoming paid-only posts. Ask me anything! Ask about craft or the creative process. Ask about specific poems or essays or books. Ask about publishing. I’m all yours.
Need some writing advice? I’m here for it.
Curious about something? Don’t be shy.
