CD53 - A Flash Memoir by Miriam Sagan

Hi there!

Today we are thrilled to present A Flash Memoir (Lebensborn, Avrum, Pandemic) by Miriam Sagan!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: I’m Miriam Sagan, poet and writer. I founded and now run the creative writing program at Santa Fe Community College. Most recent books are MAP OF THE LOST (UNM Press) and SEVEN PLACES IN AMERICA (Sherman Asher). I’m working on site specific poetry installations. For Miriam's extraordinary content, please visit: http://miriamswell.wordpress.com

A few words from Miriam about the work: This is a flash memoir. Why I put off difficult material until I was 66 years old and in lockdown in a pandemic...I do not know. Will it be published? I can't predict. But I'm working on it anyway! My most recent published memoir Bluebeard's Castle (Red Mountain, 2019) is about my near death experience as a young woman and my difficult fascinating activist father, who was on Nixon's Enemies List. Hope you enjoy. I am not that focused on what I've overcome, but here is what helped me-- feminism, Buddhism, bodywork, love, painting, music, community, landscape, the young, solitude, and pickled things in jars from farmers' markets.

A message on recent delays.

Hey there,

As you may have noticed, there have been a few episode delays on Thursdays recently. That makes me incredibly sad because I am desperate to record your episodes! Unfortunately, due to a perfect storm of submission volume and vocal problems on my part, I will be working on keeping my allergies in check and catching up on submissions. I would rather delay the episodes just a little, in order to give my best rendition of your stories and poetry! I hope to be up and running again in a few weeks.

I thank you for your beautiful work, your patience, and I hope to get back to producing your episodes in the coming weeks! I can't wait to pick up where we left off.

Much love,

j
