Nic Sebastian of Very Like a Whale has interviewed me as a part of her third ten questions series of interviews about poetry.  This series deals with the opinions and habits of poetry editors, and I was asked to participate because I am the Poetry Editor for The Dead Mule School of Southern Literature.

The Mule was begun in 1995 by Valerie MacEwan as a print magazine under a grant from the North Carolina Arts Council. It soon become an online only literary magazine. I joined the Mule staff in 2005 as a Poetry Co-Editor and became Poetry Editor in 2007.  Since then, poetry submissions at the Mule have increased.

We love our Mule.

Thanks to Nic Sebastian for the interview.

EDIT:  Oh, by the way,  Nic Sebastian has been in the Mule.  Read her poems here.

SECOND EDIT:  See also, or Why I love Val.
