In our first official episode we discuss accepting rejection and sit at the desk with Cheryl Pallant, poet, writer, dancer, all around amazing human being. Cheryl Pallant is the author of nine books, most recently Continental Drifts from BlazeVOX [Books] and a book on dance, Contact Improvisation: An Introduction to a Vitalizing Dance Form. We get to discuss her beginnings as a writer, the art of Contact Improvisation, and literary Abstract Expressionism, among other things. Also, in what we’re reading this week, we take a look at some short fiction, “Pie” by Tatiana Ryckman and “How I Will Miss My Grandmother” by Charlie Geoghegan-Clements, both recently published in the Newer York. So listen on the website or download the episode from iTunes. You’ll be happy you did.
