This week we’re talking with Kayla Greenwell about poetry, reading, and mental health.

 

 

Kayla Greenwell is an English graduate student at Purdue. When she isn’t reading and writing academic texts until her fingers fall off, she is reading manga and playing overwatch. She currently lives outside of Chicago and her work has been published in second volume of This is Poetry: The Midwest Poets.

Video games! There’s a reason we play them, and a lot of it has to do with story…

 

This episode focuses mostly on Overwatch and RiME (but we talk about other games too!)
