Writing in The Washington Post, Barbara Kingsolver talks about her current work screen-writing the TV adaptation of The Poisonwood Bible, and her rediscovered love of writing poetry:

[L]ately, something else is pulling me back to my computer late at night. I get carried away in such guilty pleasure that if my husband walks in unexpectedly, I’m prone to click off my screen as if hiding an online affair, or a gaming addiction. But it’s neither. I’m writing poetry. I hadn’t realized how badly I’ve missed language, the weight of words, their rhythms and tastes on the tongue.
