“I evaded capture and the result became six month’s worth of daily mail: false reports, found objects, collages, poetic rants and obscenity-laden letters that I mailed to our apartment, ephemera that I’m still mining for inspiration.” Michael Berger on making art while on the clock at work.

All Yumi Sakugawa asks is that you leave behind a tiny wormhole into your dreams.

The Rumpus Interview with Ben Strader, codirector of Blue Mountain Center, a creative community in the Adirondacks: “The people who last here [as employees] are those who love art and literature but who aren’t trying to sneak off and do it themselves.”

Lidia Yuknavitch interviews Kat Meads about unlikeable protagonists, “ferocious speak-back,” and making it in the world as a female writer.
