gc cohen : part four

How does your work first enter the world? Do you have a social group or writers group that you work ideas and poems with?

My work usually enters the world at the most inopportune moment – I’m driving, I’m in the shower, I’m in the middle of a work-related phone call, whilst on a hike. Usually when I’m a bazillion miles away from a pen and consumed with something else. My poems usually end up scribbled on a scrap piece of paper, or in my journal. I then type the poems, just because my handwriting is atrocious. My wife is kind and patient enough to read my work and offer her input, although I usually don’t reveal anything to a beta reader until I feel confident about the work.
