#FeatureFriday – Kayla King

Take a break, get inspired, and learn a bit more about Kayla King. Here is our twist on an interview.

  • A quote that inspires you:

  • Your writing process described as a song: Jackson Brown – Fountain of Sorrow
  • You’re a writer so tell us with your words why you write. But please don’t bore us:

Once, I talked about the idea of “what if” with someone, discussing what might have been, almost like shadow versions of myself fulfilling unresolved moments in my life. I suppose writing poetry and fiction is a way to discover these shadow people. They’re never me, but they could be. I hope they appear like anyone. And I think there is a truth universally unacknowledged that nostalgia and regret can drive a person to madness. Maybe I’m just avoiding the madness.

  • What is a recent story or poem you’ve had published elsewhere that we should read?

Unearthing Letters I Wrote You Three Years Ago” published in Dear Damsels
