Let's be honest, BOR editor Eric Morris and I really hate/do not hate each other. One time there was a donut on the sidewalk in downtown Akron and we broke into full sprints just to see who could pretend to want it more. This story may or may not be true, but hey, it could happen, I just feel it in my bones.
At The Big Big Mess reading last Friday, Eric and I were discussing what we were going to do with the BORBlog, when he suggested that we interview each other. After a few drinks and more talk (at least I remember it this way) we decided to do just that but to record it for all to see.
For this interview we are sending out a Call For Weapons. We are asking any and all who want to contribute to enlarging our discussion to send in their questions/topical material. We are looking to go beyond something egotistical, and get all of you involved in something a little bigger. So please, send us your questions about writing, poetry, Akron, Ohio, rain, tornados, hands--basically anything loosely (and I mean loosely) creative/destructive. We will select some your requests to include in our talk which will air at some point in the near future right here on BORBlog.
Send your "stuff" to us at: submit at barnowlreview.com (fill in the @ as needed, yo).
One last thing: PLEASE note that this IS NOT a call for poetry submissions. If that's your desire (which we hope it is) please check out our submissions page for details on how to submit entries for BOR 5.
