Quinterview 10

The Passionate Transitory's tenth quinterview is with outstanding writer Morelle Smith, whose poem When The Almond Tree Comes Into Flower was one of the highlights of our first issue.  

Afterwards, reading the words I’d written, what struck me most was not so much whether what I’d written was anything "good", but that I’d been in a trance-like state and this had produced these words and this was astonishing to me, like a revelation. It was quite different, much more heightened and emotional than the prose writing I’d done before. It was like a kind of magic, that such a thing could happen.

Another interesting quinterview, and I especially enjoyed "When the Almond Tree Comes Into Flower." Very well done!
