Bonus Episode - Brynn Martin

For this very special episode we interview our own Brynn Martin about her work and get to know ½ of the SFD hosts. We talk about the elementary school poetry unit that rocked her little world, how she was forever changed by LOTR (though she wasn’t allowed to watch it), and how writing poetry has always helped her work through her personal problems.

Shoutout to our guest co-host for this episode, Erin Elizabeth Smith (@sundresserin, SFD episode 5)!

Extra shoutouts to Mr. Carter, Emilia Phillips, and Barb Martin, who taught, mentored, and birthed Brynn, respectively. 

You can follow Brynn on Twitter @brynnsie and find her poem, “My Mother’s Nipples” at Crab Orchard Review. You can read the original (yikes-y) Robert Hass poem at Michigan Quarterly Review. You can also read more of Brynn’s recent work at Five:2:One’s #thesideshow.
