Caitlin’s essay “Kerouac’s Junk Mail, Merrill’s Ouija Board: Living With Literary Ghosts” was published in The Angle and reprinted in the Fantastic Floridas Series through Burrow Press. From the editor’s introduction at The Angle:

“… Doyle has traveled all over the United States for Writer-In-Residence positions and teaching posts, including coveted fellowships at the James Merrill House in Stonington, CT, and the Jack Kerouac House in Orlando, FL. We recently asked her to reflect, for readers of The Angle, on her experience living and writing in both writers’ houses, and on her journey as an emerging writer. Her essay beautifully explores questions of literary influence and the discoveries that come when one lives with the ghosts, whether actual or imagined, of other writers …”
