Interview with Mitchell Grabois

Describe your work in 25 words or less.

My poetry, columns, short stories, and novels are all ways to tell stories.


Tell me about your poem “Escaped Slave.”

Emily Dickinson remains a subject of fascination for writers. This poem followed the experience of seeing a photo of her.


What or who inspires you to write?

I don’t really think in terms of “inspiration.” I write because it’s what I do.


What authors have influenced you as a writer?

I’m never able to answer this question. I cannot trace my influences. And I’ve deeply enjoyed so many writers, from my early years on, that there’s way too many to list.


Do you have a blog/website?

I have a Facebook page for my novel, Two-Headed Dog.


What are you working on right now?

Answering these interview questions.


Any advice for other writers?

If you enjoy writing, write.


Anything else you’d like to say?

I really appreciate being published in Bop Dead City. I’m appreciative of all editors who do the hard work of keeping literature a living organism.
