INTERVIEW WITH JOHN MOST

When did you first feel like a writer?
As a third-grader, after reading a handful of Poe’s poems.
What is your teaching philosophy?
It’s ever-changing and situation dependent, but it’s rooted in respect, kindness, and generosity.
If you could meet any fictional character, who would it be and why?
I have a few questions for Cordelia.
