Why do you write?

Writing can bring change. I think of myself as an activist writer. I try to act as witness, and convey and interpret what I see.

Are you a vivid dreamer?

I used to be able to control my dreams to a fair extent (at least the ones I could later recall). I could also adjust colour and sound and induce dreams by deciding what I wanted to dream before falling sleep. I can do this less now, but I still manage to intervene in my dreams at times. I have always been interested in dream language and in the motif of the dream in poetry.
