Poetry and Activism: Interview on Weirding Word

Special thanks to Gaea Honeycutt for this interview with me on her blog, Weirding Word: http://weirdingword.typepad.com/weirding_word/2007/11/weirding-word-s.html

Here's an excerpt:

I had some very stern [internal] editors, who especially told me not to risk sentimentality -- that brush with which women's writing is so often tarred. The result, I think, is that we don't risk emotion; we don't risk telling the truth. Which is just as fatal, if not more so, to poetry as sentimentality.
