Today we are pleased to feature author Eugene Gloria as our Authors Talk series contributor. Eugene discusses failure and its role in creating successful poems or stories.
He focuses particularly on how failure led to the successful publication of My Favorite Warlord in 2012. “Apricot Trees,” a poem that was published in Issue 3 of SR, is included in this collection of poems.
We are also privileged to hear a reading of “Allegory of the Laundromat,” and to learn the story behind this poem.
Eugene expresses that he needs to be “willingly ignorant” or “willing to embrace failure” when writing poetry. He mentions this is also an important strategy to utilize in light of the recent political change.
You can read Eugene’s poetry in Superstition Review Issue 3.
