Cassidy McFadzean : part two

How did you first engage with poetry?

I was drawn to poetry out of a love for language itself. In poetry, words can be the focus of a piece, and I found in poetry an art form that celebrates the esoteric, the archaic, the enigmatic. This is why most of my writing participates in the lyric mode; I find the combination of music and meaning that occurs when certain words are recited in a certain order to be incredibly moving if not magical.
