How does your work first enter the world? Do you have a social group or writers group that you work ideas and poems with?
I moved to Chicago a year ago, I’ve been part of more poem-a-day email threads
and NaPoWriMo 30/30 challenges than in my entire lifetime previously. Some of
those folks are my colleagues at The Poetry Foundation and some are not. Those
threads are a really supportive space to try things out in poems, where I feel
free to experiment with little pressure to be perfect.
