This week we welcome back Leslie McGrath as our guest blogger. Leslie's first poetry collection, Opulent Hunger, Opulent Rage,won the 2009 Main St Rag poetry prize. Her poetry is widely published and has been translated into Portuguese and Romanian. McGrath is also a literary interviewer whose interviews regularly appear in The Writer's Chronicle. If she could publicly admit to a love affair with a specific food without being shunned, that food would be Swiss chard.
Welcome back, Leslie.
