Datebook: How Bay Area authors stay creative amid the coronavirus pandemic

Poet Tess Taylor questioned what it means to be creative, when every day feels like a radical reinvention of life.

“These days, helping myself and my family steer a way around sadness, anger, grief, loneliness, boredom or despair feels like its own art form. This emotional work of getting around and through takes time, even before the time of sitting to write, or dreaming of a poem,” said Taylor, author of the forthcoming “Rift Zone.”
