THE GLASS CASTLE by Jeannette Walls | WRiTE Now!!? -advice and inspiration. (Tips & Tricks)!! | Scoop.it

From her first memory, of catching fire while boiling hotdogs by herself in the trailer park, to her last glimpse of her mother, picking through a New York City Dumpster, Walls’s detached, direct, and unflinching account of her rags-to-riches life proves a troubling ride.

Writing in Place: Projections of Landscape | Lytton Smith | LA Review of Books

...place is always a construction — a structured reality. When we talk of landscape we’re referring to subjective perceptions of the world rather than topographical actualities, as Dennis Cosgrove and others have argued. And a poetry that seeks to write (in) place might well record the mind encountering both the environmental and the imaginative; in so doing, it might expose the fictions of borders and boundaries, their secret lives as made things, drawn lines. Place as it is seen.
