ep. 136 - Susan Vespoli Rattle Poetry

    • Arts

Susan Vespoli lives in Phoenix, Arizona, where she relies on the power of writing to stay sane. She’s taught Montessori preschoolers and ENG101 to community college students, owned a school, delivered newspapers, bicycled up a mountain, rehabbed a few extreme fixer-upper houses, and currently facilitates virtual writing circles on writers.com. Her work has been published in Rattle, Mom Egg Review, NASTY WOMEN POETS: An Unapologetic Anthology of Subversive Verse, Nailed Magazine, and other cool spots. Her new book, Blame it on the Serpent, opens all the windows and doors to shed light on her experience of loving offspring captured by the terrorist known as an opioid epidemic.
