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 good friend Jenn Johnson and I have been doing the poetry penpal thing, so she will send a batch of awesome poems in the mail, then I will write response poems and send them back. We’ve been doing this for about 2 years or so, and it has been really great challenge to take on new forms and topics. Every letter we send is addressed to a new imaginary organization like The League of Self-Important Poets or Association of Crokinole Poetry, so it’s always fun to see what wacky name is written on the envelope.
