Today I am so lucky to be arts calling Donna Spruijt-Metz! (donnasmetz.com)
About our guest, in her own words:
I am a poet, translator, and Professor of Psychology and Preventive Medicine at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. My first career was as a professional flutist.
- My first full length, General Release from the Beginning of the World, was officially born on January 1. 2023! Order it here from Free Verse Editions! And thank you Camille Dungy and Orion Magazine for choosing my book as one of 14 recommended poetry books for the winter!
- My chapbook, Slippery Surfaces, published by Finishing Line Press is available to order from FLP or on Amazon.
- Flower Conroy and I were recently MacDowell Fellows, and have a collaborative chapbook, And Haunt the World, with Ghost City Press. Download it for free here!
Thanks so much for taking the time to share so many beautiful moments of your life and craft, Donna! All the best and happy writing!
