I’ve been writing poetry since I was eighteen–and, let me tell you, that was a while ago. I took a couple of creative writing classes in college, but they focused on fiction. As a poet, I am self-taught. I’ve read books on writing poetry–and I have read lots and lots of published poetry.
I can’t emphasize enough the importance of actually reading poetry. That’s how you grow as a poet–and as a person, too. There’s something innately spiritual about poetry.
Anyway, the purpose of this blog is for me to work on improving my craft–and I’d like to invite you to join me. Let’s write together.
