What inspired you to write this Chapbook/Book? What else should we know about it? Or just add the Blurb.
I was inspired by my muse Cynthia, and by several good teachers.
Chard deNiord Poet Laureate of Vermont said:
“George Longenecker writes as both stargazer and Earthling, shifting back and forth in his local chronicles between cosmic wonder and immense particulars. Both car fenders and stars shine with equal glow in these poems. His parallax vision coalesces into a single yet complex outlook that captures his human vista—both inscrutable distance and exquisite minutiae. The more details Longenecker gets down, both animate and inanimate, the more tender he becomes in his awareness as a minute mortal with a wide eye and fragile hand. “Planets and stars fall to the horizon,” he writes in “It Doesn’t Matter Much on Jupiter,” ‘A storm blows on Jupiter/ older than all of our history—/ Love, I hope we can survive/ for one more night.’”
What was your journey to publication like?
I submitted to lots of publishers, before I found one, then it was smooth sailing and just none moths to publication.
