A fine interview of Michael Dickel by Paul Brooks. Michael is a contributing editor to The BeZine and one of my selections this year for The Best of Net. It was through Michael’s collection War Surrounds Us [recommended, one of my favorite collections especially the poem “Mosquito”] that we “met” and we’ve been collaborating on sundry projects since then. Michael is a tireless advocate for peace, sustainability,and social justice including women’s rights and immigrant rights, for the poet as witness, and for the global movement, 100,000 Poets for Change. I count myself blessed to call him friend. Michael Dickel’s Amazon page is HERE.
Wombwell Rainbow Interviews
I am honoured and privileged that the following writers local, national and international have agreed to be interviewed by me. I gave the writers two options: an emailed list of questions or a more fluid interview via messenger.
The usual ground is covered about motivation, daily routines and work ethic, but some surprises too. Some of these poets you may know, others may be new to you. I hope you enjoy the experience as much as I do.
