Ep. 72 Melissa Jordan | Red Low Fog, poetry forms, and crafting narrative

Hi there,

Today I am thrilled to be arts calling Melissa Jordan!

About our guest:
Melissa E. Jordan lives in northwestern Connecticut, and was raised primarily in Ledyard, CT. Her recent poetry collection, Red Low Fog/Transcript (Animal Heart Press, 2022) is a hybrid poetry/fiction collection in the form of a documentary transcript. Each interview subject speaks in their own specific category of poetry.

Her previous collection, Bain-Marie (Big Wonderful Press) was published in 2015. Jordan’s poems have appeared in The Cossack Review, The Dillydoun Review, Open: Journal of Art & Letters, Word Riot, Otis Nebula, Terrain, Off the Coast, Rat’s Ass Review, and elsewhere.

Jordan, who has worked as a newspaper reporter, freelance journalist and as a communications specialist for an anti-hunger agency, is currently working on a graphic verse novel/alternative history project with her husband, the writer/illustrator Michael A.Reilly. Together, they are the exceedingly proud parents of an adult daughter and son, and are cooking up plans to travel by campervan and/or boat, starting next year.
