Lucy Griffiths has been a member of the Writers’ League since last fall and is attending the 2015 Summer Writing Retreat in Alpine. She lives in Comfort, TX.
Scribe: In what genre(s) do you write?
Lucy Griffiths: I write poetry and nonfiction with a focus on the natural world.
Scribe: What authors would you like to have coffee or a beer with and which beverage?
LG: I would love to have a coffee with the poet, Mary Oliver and a beer with Eric Larsen.
Scribe: If you were stranded on a deserted island, what book would you want to have with you to keep you sane?
LG: I would want to have Women Who Run with Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola-Estes. Each page is packed with lyricism and wisdom, and hits me differently each time.
Scribe: What have you learned from your association with the Writers’ League?
LG: That encouraging advice gets you through the tough times and that the organization encourages that generosity.
Scribe: Where do you see your writing taking you (or you taking it) in the future?
LG: I see another book of poetry in my future and a longer book on the magic of living on a ranch in the Texas Hill Country.
Scribe: Is there anything else about you that you would like to share with the world? An opportunity for blatant self-promotion!
LG: My dream is to educate and inspire others about our unique Hill Country environment with humor and passion. Each word of poetry-driven prose is steeped in my love of the Hill Country landscape. I think of myself as having a margarita in my veins and limestone in my bones.
