Today, we continue to celebrate the launch of Issue 17. We’re proud to feature Lucinda Roy as our twenty-seventh Authors Talk series contributor and our second from Issue 17, discussing her poem “Narrative Arcs in Hindsight.”
In the podcast, she speaks about the genesis of the poem; the content, such as having worked with the Virginia Tech shooter, and “what we do with art in the face of tragedy.”
You can listen to the podcast on our iTunes Channel, #214.
You can read Lucinda’s “Narrative Arcs in Hindsight” in Superstition Review Issue 17.
