Real Talk with Amber Atiya at PW’s

Amber Atiya at Poets & Writers:

“These are moments I live for as a writer, scribbling notes in the margins of a SNAP booklet (“What You Should Know About Your Rights & Responsibilities”) or on the back of a voter registration form I’ll never use. Occasionally, these moments become poems, a couple of which appear in my chapbook, The Fierce Bums of Doo-Wop, recently published by Argos Books. (Shout out to my nephew J—-, who checked my ego by constantly asking, “Ams, what’s the name of your book again?” Only to walk off, chuckling, before I could answer.)”
