"I think ritualizing the act of writing is extremely dangerous to being a writer, because it's really easy to make the ritual the art, and you don't even notice it." Shane McCrae talks with fellow poet Dora Malech about tradition, accesibility, and process for Iowa City's Little Village magazine. McCrae's poetry collection The Animal Too Big to Kill (Persea Books, 2015) is featured in Page One in the January/February issue of Poets & Writers Magazine.
