Fresno Poet Megan Anderson Bohigian Reflects On Her Latest Book, 'Vanishing Point'

Laura Tsutsui
Valley Public Radio

Megan Anderson Bohigian has been a teacher and writer for years, but only started publishing her own work after she retired in 2012. Her latest collection of poems, “Vanishing Point," uses metaphors to compare nature to her personal experiences. Megan says the inspiration to write about her memories in this way comes from "playing" with words; the poem often “emerges,” only after writing and rewriting a poem.

Listen to the interview above to hear more from Megan, including a few of her new poems. Her book launches this Saturday, February 16 at 7 p.m. with poetry readings at the Backroom at the Revue Coffee Shop.
