My Featured Blogger this week is the wonderful Sarah M. Zang (a.k.a. S.M. Zang), who maintains multiple blog sites, one for her own poetry, and others for a broad community of modern writers.
Sarah is an indomitable champion of other artists. Last year, she and a friend drove hundreds of miles to see the world premiere of my film Over-the-Rhine. Meeting her in person was only a confirmation of the friendship we’d already formed through exploring each other’s work.
But gratitude and friendship alone did not inspire this post. Sarah is an artist in her own right. Like butterflies trapped in amber, her poems are full of aching beauty and spiritual longing. She mourns and celebrates the human experience, while hinting at the promise of something more.
