More Lavender & Poetic Asides Interview

I know, I know, it's just not like me to post two days in a row, but how can I not when Robert Lee Brewer has just posted an Exclusive Interview With Poet Martha Silano on his Poetic Asides blog? I mean, tiptoeing through the lavender (and being divebombed by bees) has been fun and all, but the honor of getting to gab away on Robert's site is most definitely the bee's knees. Read it and learn more about (1) manic depressive illness and its relation to postpartum psychosis; (2) how I wrote Blue Positive; (3) where and how to submit your poetry; and (4) four very good advice-y tidbits.

I loved this interview -- am going to look up the book, Poets on Prozac.

Hey Karen,

You're the best! Poets on Prozac is an amazing book, and not just b/c my essay is in it. Ren Powell, Denise Duhamel, Andrew Hudgins and many others have their say as well. It's a book that really breaks through stereotypes about mental illness, including that it's a boon to creativity. I hope you enjoy it!
