I just got off the phone with Sarah Maclay, a Los Angeles based poet who was gracious enough to spend some time with me talking about her journey as a writer and teacher. It was so insightful that I wish I had a tape recorder at the time. Fortunately, I found an interview with Poetic Diversity online that gives a glimpse of some of her intelligence, generosity, and dedication to poetry. Many thanks to Frankie Drayus for introducing me to Sarah, and helping to reconnect me to what's great about the LA-area poetry scene.
