“God Is Dead” And I Don’t Feel So Good Myself

“To submit the results of much blood, sweat, and anguish to an editor is a frightening thought. What if that editor doesn’t appreciate all the thought and insight I’ve condensed into a poem or essay? What if my writing feels insignificant and unworthy? When my work has gone under Andrew’s knife, his feedback has produced a sharpening and clarifying effect. He manages to extract the fruit and discard the pulp. I recommend him as a wise and clear-eyed editor.”
