The lead story for this issue of S P C is called ‘Virgo.’ It’s part of a series of ‘zines’ for DK’s S P C that are specifically about Finland. And are fiction works. New genre for me. I was all over the place with memoir, and then, its natural segue, creative nonfiction, from 2012-2019. But this year things are in a new vibe, all around, for so many, many reasons. Recalling my first encounters with fiction writers in Ireland and farther afield, and remembering their advice, now, in these moments of going back in time and calling up the best of everything anyone I met ever said to me. Not bad.
