New Jenny Blackford interview (and other doings)

My always amazing wife, Jenny Blackford, has a new interview over here in the fanzine Dark Matter. Check it out. She talks about the processes of writing fiction and poetry, the value to be found in the classics, her recent and forthcoming work, and much else. Even I learned a thing or two about how she thinks and writes.

And as a bonus, for those of you who don’t know Jenny’s work, here’s a sample – her narrative poem, set in a mythic ancient world, “Their Cold Eyes Pierced My Skin”. It appears in a prestigious online publication, The Pedestal Magazine.

Jenny will be interviewing Margo Lanagan live on Thursday evening at the Lock-Up in Newcastle, for the Hunter Writers’ Centre. Any of my readers who happen to be based in Newcastle should come along.
