Guest Post: A Late Bloomer’s Guide to Publishing by Chelsey Drysdale

Chelsey Drysdale

Until I walked into a UCLA Extension personal essay class in January 2013 when I was 39-years-old, I was an unpublished perfectionist with a fear of failure so debilitating I hadn’t written a word in two years. I was a writer who didn’t write, and I didn’t consider myself a real writer. But what is

Guest Post: The Accidental Poets by William Greenfield

William Greenfield

Some decades ago I unwittingly fathered a baby girl. Through some trick of fate or the magic of genetics, that baby girl helped me develop into something loosely resembling a poet. I say “loosely” because part of me believes that a true poet should be a student of the craft; should read the classic poets

Guest Post: The Art of Construction by Shaina Clingempeel

Shaina Clingempeel

Oftentimes, people picture the modern poet as an outspoken individual. This individual shares even her early scraps. I, however, differ from this image. Throughout college, I dreaded the workshop circle. While I like the concept of collaboration, I struggle to do so with more than one poet or professor at a time. I consider myself

Guest Post: Laryngitis by Diana Conces

Diana Conces

Laryngitis is, of course, a temporary loss of voice. You try to speak, and what comes out is this awkward, hollow hiss, like a particularly disgruntled ghost dragging a rusty pitchfork across a chalkboard, and then everyone around you puts their hands to their ears and urges you to rest. But you can’t let it

Secretary by Megan Roberts

Megan Roberts

I was called a secretary again. When I hear the word, it makes my blood boil. I know my master’s degree is sitting on the shelf laughing at the way my face contorts when my co-workers spew their venom. The proper response is not to scream or yell or storm out. Instead, I have to

Guest Post: A-merica, our home and native land… by Garreth Chan

Garreth Chan

I spent two months of my summer entangled and confused in an endless jungle of a fantastically exotic city.

Glass and cement twisted into a permanent tango, childish handwriting in chalk emblazoned across uneven sidewalks, slowly scrubbed away by the scuttling feet of the masses, and the roar of traffic buried in the rumble of
