Merle Nudleman on Howl CIUT 89.5 FM

True as MoonlightOn Tuesday, Septebember 9th, Merle Nudleman spoke with Nancy Bullis on CIUT 89.5 FM’s program Howl. The two talked about poetry, the importance of workshopping, Merle’s granddaughter Stephanie, and Merle Nudleman also read from her latest poetry collection True as Moonlight.

Nudleman read several poems from her collection, including “Flying Lessons,” “The Sacred and the Sea,” and “Stephanie Discovers the Moon.”

“Stephanie Discovers the Moon,” Merle explains in the interview, is a poem about her granddaughter learning how to read. The poetry collection True as Moonlight is dedicated to Merle Nudleman’s granddaughter Stephanie, who is now nine and a half, and has her own copy of the book which she enjoys reading.

Nancy Bullis and Merle Nudleman also discuss the importance of workshopping. Nudleman mentions that she workshopped the poems in the collection with Catherine Graham, who, in a funny coincidence, she had met years ago when both of them were both being interviewed on Howl.

Merle Nudleman, unlike many writers, has published all four of her books with the same publisher. She discussed that choice with Bullis and mentioned that she was very much a part of the Guernica family. And, we at Guernica can confirm this.
