Q&A …

… Orion Magazine | Seven Questions for Camille Dungy, Orion’s New Poetry Editor. (Hat Rus Bowden.)

One thing a good writer can do is to map the world of her imagination in such a way that a reader feels as if they could walk around that world and not get lost. This is too often an overlooked element of quality craft. When it is pulled off well, it can be amazing. How many of our readers had a map of Middle Earth on their walls when they were growing up? That is an example of excellent Literary Mapping.
