This week we welcome Kate Daniels as our guest blogger. Kate is the author of four books of poetry, including A Walk in Victoria’s Secret, her most recent, and the editor of Muriel Rukeyser’s selected poems, Out of Silence. She has just completed a prose work called, Slow Fuse of the Possible: A Narrative of Psychoanalysis and Poetry which highlights her interdisciplinary interest in psychoanalysis. She now teaches writing part time in the New Directions program at the Washington (D.C.) Center for Psychoanalysis. She lives in Nashville, Tennessee, and is a Professor of English at Vanderbilt University where she’ll take on the directorship of the creative writing program later this summer. Welcome, Kate.
