Joelle Barron : part four

What poets changed the way you thought about writing?

To be honest, the first book of poetry I owned by a living person was Jewel’s A Night Without Armour. However anyone (including myself, now) might feel about the quality of those poems, my thirteen-year-old self learned what line breaks were, and that poems didn’t have to rhyme. That feels like as important a moment as any in my literary career.
