Small Note on Sarah's Second Book of Poetry

Recently the Current Magazine published a cover article and interview with Sarah. Some good questions were posed, including with regards to her second book of poetry. Unlike Raven's, Sarah has decided to "focus this time on keeping this book very much about the text and I'm not going to put any paintings in it, I'm going to try to separate those two worlds."

There is no mention of the release date of this book or any other side projects. A side comment is made about completing her musical someday or a symphony.

You can read the full article here in PDF Format on page 13 or as unformatted HTML.
