Poet Tells of the Writing Life

New England weather inspires Poet Will Dowd

In the tradition of Thoreau’s Walden, Will Dowd wrote Areas of Fog over the course of a year, using the weather as the opening scene. The essays veer off from there, exploring numerous and diverse themes. We talk with Will Dowd about overcoming writers block and, after an MFA and years of editing and critique, staying true to his voice. Mindy Todd hosts.
