Conrad's Corner: An Interview With Janeal Ravndal

Janeal Ravndal got her start in poetry by borrowing a verse from her mother and taking it to school as a child, "and the teacher was so pleased that I decided I was a poet too."

Hailing from Yellow Springs, Ravndal often writes occasional verse, a style of poetry her mother also writes.  In this interview, Ravndal shares several occasion verse poems with Conrad Balliet and talks about the craft of writing.
