The ever generous Marge Simon invited me to send her a guest essay for her September column in the newsletter of the Horror Writer's Association. I wrote a short, non-academic piece about my poetry writing "strategy." The essay includes excerpts from Grim Series. So, if you're a member of the HWA (I'm not, so I won't see it except for the tear sheets), then I hope that you'll find it interesting. I'll reprint the essay here at the end of the year. And if you pick up my book, I hope that you will enjoy it. Have a wonderful Sunday!
