Ryan Werner on small presses, road trips, and rock-n-roll

About a month ago, I posted about the big Unshod Quills One-Hit Wonders reading here in Portland, with a lot of attention to literary rock star (literally) Ryan Werner.

But there’s a hell of a lot more to his side of that story, and today, in Passages North, he tells it:

We do all of these things in different ways. It took me a lot of years and a lot of conscious effort to make myself realize that, aside from there being a vast-but-finite number of journals and publishers and multiple-but-limited opportunities within each realm, someone gaining something is not the same as someone taking something away from me.
