How does your work first enter the world? Do you have a social group or writers group that you work ideas and poems with?
For the past year or so, I’ve had a first reader who sees everything I write before anyone else does. I have other writer friends who look at my drafts later in the process. Unfortunately, because I’ve moved so much, I don’t have a cohesive writers’ group, but on the upside, I keep meeting new writers. Drafts and ideas are worked out in person, via email, and on the phone.
