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
Kayla King’s work has been published by or is forthcoming from One For One Thousand, Germ Magazine, Five 2 One Magazine, Plath Poetry Project, Cat on a Leash Review, MockingHeart Review, Figroot Press, Souvenir Lit Journal, Dear Damsels, The Mystic Blue Review, The Green Light, Firewords Magazine, and Twelve Winters Press.
See you next week, with another not-so-typical interview.
