The author of three books--CITIES OF FLESH AND THE DEAD, Elixir Press, 2008; FAREWELL, MY LOVELIES, Story Line Press, 2000; HURRICANE WALK, BOA Editions, Ltd, 1992--Blakely is currently working on two manuscripts, RAIN IN OUR DOOR: DUETS WITH ROBERT JOHNSON and LOST ADDRESSES: NEW AND SELECTED POEMS A poetry editor at ANTIOCH REVIEW for a dozen years, she continues that position at NEW WORLD WRITING, and has recently contributed essays and critical pieces to that journal as well as HARVARD REVIEW, PLATH PROFILES, PLEIADES, and SMARTISH PACE. A two-time Pushcart winner, Blakely has also been honored with the Poetry Society of America's Alice Fay Di Castagnola Award, among other such distinctions.

Note to potential readers: I apologize for the fact that this column, scheduled for December, appears what seems to me very late; on the other hand, after being hospitalized four times, including a stint that encompassed both Christmas and New Year’s and a furlough that resulted in two broken ribs, I feel it’s a miracle that it’s appearing at all.  Enjoy!—I hope.

Aberjhani Thank you for joining the Q&A Group. You are among a handful of contemporary authors and poets whose very formidable literary example helps me to maintain focus on and respect for my own aspirations as a creative artist.
