What: What compels me to write?  Maybe it’s in my DNA, like my pointy nose and near-sightedness. My new book, Cold Heart, is dedicated thus: “To my mother, Juanita H Williams, who would’ve liked it.” She was a journalism major at the University of…

What: I write poetry; I write poetry reviews. I’ve committed acts of fiction but decided long ago that writing poetry was more fun, more satisfying than writing a 20-or-30-page story. I have no desire to write a novel. I can’t imagine extending a story…

Is Cofell a businesswoman trapped inside a poet, or poet trapped inside a businesswoman? Read how she strikes a balance!

What: I’m a businesswoman trapped inside a poet. Wait a minute. Strike that. Reverse it. I’m a poet trapped inside a businesswoman. Or is it the other way around? Simply trapped. I’m two women in one body. Think Freaky Friday but only one brain. What…

Someone on Twitter bullied me for asking the president not to defund NEA. #MondayBlogs

Sue Barnard is a British novelist, editor & award-winning poet whose family background is far stranger than any work of fiction.#WW
