Looking for more Junie Désil Here are seven questions with Désil in Touch the Donkey. She discusses her new poem “Revolution,” her current work-in-progress, and more.
“Q: With a published full-length debut and your current work-in-progress, how do you feel your work has developed? Where do you see your work headed?
A: I think that one way I’ve developed is more of a willingness to experiment with forms. I’m still a bit reluctant but the idea is not so daunting. I’m liking the idea more and more of a container for “working the page” I’m guessing my reluctance is because I haven’t been formally taught forms. I’m leaning into the idea for now that writing is what I want to do, and that provides a focus if you will, but I’m taking my time. In terms of where I see my work headed, I don’t know but I am most excited about “maturing” and leaning into the craft and discipline of writing and being curious about where I go with it!”
