DV Episode 12 - Maud Kelly and Megan McGinley
On this episode I got to chat with poet Maud Kelly and artist Megan McGinley, whose collaborative book, Descent: Your Guide to the Underworld is available from Three Planes Publishing. Maud Kelly is a poet, essayist, and stage-4 cancer survivor. Megan McGinley, co-owner of the PDX design and creative studio Central Office,  is an artist and designer with extensive experience in printmaking.  Maud happens to have been my first creative writing teacher, so it was fun to catch up after more than a decade.  Enjoy!

DV Podcast Episode 10 - Logan Garrity
Logan Garrity is the cowriter and director of Pool Party '15, which was released early last year.  Making a movie is no small feat; I would imagine all of us have, at some point, imagined writing/directing/shooting/producing/releasing a movie. Logan and I talk about what it takes to actually bring a film to life, and what it can cost. In the end, we are all of us creators, big and small, and every great project begins with little more than an idea, a dream. Enjoy!
