Interview with Daniel Lusk, whose new collection is The Vermeer Suite (Wind Ridge Books of Vermont). The interview was recorded in front of an audience at the South Burlington Community Library in South Burlington, Vermont. Listeners who want to look at the paintings along with the broadcast can look here:
A Maid Asleep ("Wednesday's Child") The Astronomer ("The Astronomer")
Woman Reading a Letter at the Open
Window ("Yellow") The Little Street ("Memoir")
The Milkmaid ("Holland") Girl With the Red Hat ("White Fire")
Girl With a Pearl Earring ("Girl")
This week's Write the Book Prompt is to use one of these paintings as inspiration in your own work. Study one of these paintings, then write a poem, a story, a scene.
Good luck with this exercise and please listen next week for another.
