Really excited to be a part of this book project. I’ve been thinking a lot about how I became a writer and a poet, people who inspired me, teachers who really affected me. Philip Levine is one of those people. I wrote an essay over sabbatical called ” “An Apprentice’s Tale” that will appear in this collection.
Here are the details:
