Minimal Space and More Precise Details
“Once you start writing poetry, it starts to influence everything; thoughts, emails, texts, so of course the rest of my prose is affected. Each word, each blank space, each punctuation mark must represent something in a poem, and now I’m able to use that mentality when approaching prose. Hopefully that can only make my writing better and more interesting.”
Meredith’s short nonfiction piece “Gravity” appears in Issue 27 of Mud Season Review, out January 20, 2017.
From the Letter from the Editor, “The moments and observations that Boe weaves together here provide the reader with a window into this complexity, a mind that seems to be experiencing denial, sadness, and a reluctant acceptance all at once.”

“Literature teaches us to understand, in the most intimate way, the experiences and interior lives of others — which, of course, reveals us to ourselves.”
