Billeh Nickerson : part five

How important is music to your poetry?

This question can be interpreted in so many ways! I am a firm believer/practitioner of reading my poems out loud during the writing process. Like hundreds and hundreds of times. That’s where the musicality plays out. In terms of writing, I’ve often listened to favourite music when writing, and lately I’ve been experimenting with listening to songs on repeat. Like the same song for an hour. I find it helps me to zone out everything else and just focus on the poem.
