NSP Meditations Blog Welcomes You

Dear Readers:

Welcome to the next chapter in my writing career. Thank you for joining.

In 2016/17 my life took an unexpected direction that ended my professional, personal and creative life as I knew it. I lost a lot, but found much, too. In this blog, I will meditate on that experience, perhaps figuring out ways to rebuild and reinvent myself. I will also write about other subjects that interest and intersect with me or that connect to the primary mission of Nestucca Spit Press, which is having writers explore all things uniquely Oregon. Some of the topics I will write about include: dogs, rain, driftwood forts, books, pot shops, beer, love, friendship, Astoria, Portland, the Oregon Coast, coyotes, gigging, running a small business, my status as a pariah, hiking, walking, the ocean, gulls, the state’s unique legacy of publicly-owned beaches, teaching, music, Vortex, writers, writing, publishing, tennis, limpets, Oregon City, dive bars and taverns and more.

At times, other NSP correspondents will join me on this blog because I want to keep publishing other voices, new and old, lost and found. If you might want to be a correspondent, let me know.

I hope readers can make a financial contribution to support this new editorial endeavor and help writers do their work. Give what you can and collaborate with us. Spread the word, too.

Matt Love
