I think everyone should have their own happy place. Somewhere where we can retire by ourselves, or be surrounded by loved ones, or even complete strangers - whatever works for us. A place where we can either forget about our problems or give ourselves the time and space we need to reflect and analyse. A place that means something, somewhere that just feels good. A happy place is a part of taking time for ourselves and having some me-time. Everyone needs that.
Today’s writer interview is with poet and author M. Sakran! Find out about his journey into the world of writing, how he mixes poetry with artwork, and the challenges of writing novels and moving forward. I’m sure you’ll find something in this interview which resonates with you, as I have.
Another week, another writer interview! Today we’re spending some time with Scott Thomas Outlar – poetry, fiction and essay writer, and editor for Walking Is Still Honest Press, The Blue Mountain Review, and The Peregrine Muse.
This week’s interview is with Idalis Harris! Idalis is an 18 year old poet from Los Angeles and is currently studying at Arizona State University. Her poems have been published in Peeking Cat Poetry Magazine twice, in July 2016 and January 2017.
In December, when I was thinking about how I would spend my time off in those days between Christmas and New Year, I decided that 2017 was going to be a great year for Peeking Cat. On Christmas Eve, I was even sitting in my living room writing a business plan, and in the days that followed after Christmas I was busy working on my ideas. What started out as a small hobby on the side, and publishing a new issue whenever I had enough good quality poems to do so, has turned into a monthly activity that I love and that other people enjoy too. And I want it to be even bigger.
