March 3, 2013 Toni Mirosevich Part 1!

This past Sunday we played part one of our interview with Toni Mirosevich. Throughout the interview we discussed her books The Takeaway Bin, (Spuyten Duyvil, 2010), poems inspired by Oblique Strategies, a card game created in 1975 by Brian Eno and Peter Schmidt, and Pink Harvest: Tales of Happenstance, (Mid List Press, 2007) a collection of creative non-fiction. When reviewing the pieces in The Takeaway Bin, Toni generously shared with us her process and decision making in her form, as well as her sense of play when choosing what to include in her poems. In her creative non-fiction, Toni pays great attention to human error and imperfection. We discussed how detail, (the 'smallest door'), reveals the emotion or conflict of a story. Tune in next week when we play part 2!
