Of Mind and Matter
You’ll get to work with our Portland Dream Team.
We’re smitten with THE MIDDLEPAUSE, and we’re not alone.
“I sometimes remind myself that it’s not actual surgery: If chopping that sentence turns out to have been a mistake, it can be SEWN BACK ON.”
“It’s nothing to work that way, deep into the night, until the sky goes dark and then soft gray.”
“I’d write ten pieces a week because I liked having lights in my apartment.”
“The conversation between the past and the present in New York is always kind of ambivalent.”
“I will always write about black womanhood and I will always be influenced by popular culture and our contemporary myth.”
“Her main interest when it comes to books is to chew on the corners of them (which she has only done twice, thankfully, to a memoir and a story collection), and to sit on them (which she does any time I have books spread out on the floor).”
“I’ve always been drawn to dramatic writing; to the immediacy of it.”
Exciting new updates from some of the Catapult Writing Program's students!
