Journal Feature: The Blueshift (2015)

I had the pleasure of speaking with Tyler Tsay, the editor-in-chief, of the profound new literary journal The Blueshift Journal. This journal features young, relatively undiscovered writers and artists, hoping that great art will provide an ethereal closeness between humans. Tsay is only a senior in high school himself and yet he has managed to create… More Journal Feature: The Blueshift (2015)

With Love and Light All Around: Interview with Poet John L. Stanizzi (2015)

  It isn’t often that you have the chance to understand a high school mentor as both a child and adult but I have had the fortunate opportunity to know poet John L. Stanizzi as both a teacher and friend. Myself, like many others have benefited from his ability to make poetry a deeply personal experience rather than simply… More With Love and Light All Around: Interview with Poet John L.
