Poetry and the Writing Process with Michael Minassian

In this podcast recorded in the Summer of 2008, Professor Gary Kay and I talk about the writing process and poetry. During our discussion, I read three of my published poems and we talked about the evolution and background of each poem. The poem "Crazy Jane..." was workshopped at a 1999 Poetry Conference in Sante Fe, New Mexico. The leader of that workshop was a poet and editor named Robert McDowell. You can visit Robert's website and sign up for his Free Poetry Mentor Newsletter at:

During this podcast I also mentioned the writer Julia Cameron, author of The Artist's Way and several other excellent books on creativity and writing. You can find out more at:

Here is a video of our discussion


You can also hear us discuss a fourth poem entitled "The Arboriculturist" at my blog:

This restriction is so outrageous for every country and you have to lock in for this resistance. The shooter work is a to a great degree serious movement and France is incredible. The all-inclusive community who appreciate this http://www.writingabio.com/professional-realtor-bio-writing-service/ gives the extraordinary contention to each one of the players.
