This week on Desk Space, Matthew Tierney (The Hayflick Limit) talks about his writing habits and invites us into his literary lab. That's one steep view out his window — an appropriate one for the author of phobia poems.
Take a look at the desk space of Sina Queyras (Expressway), which is profiled this week on desk-space.blogspot.com, along with an interview with the author about her writing habits and current projects.
Visit Desk Space to view the books, photos, stuffed animals and figurines (can you find Colonel Sanders?) adorning the corners where poets Jeramy Dodds (Crabwise to the Hounds) and David McGimpsey (Sitcom) burn the midnight oil.
